We know you already make an effort to Live Green, and that many of you have also chosen to Give Local, but this holiday season we are urging you to ramp up your efforts…
When you invest locally, you actually benefit from returns in the short and long term. You can feel proud knowing that your support will help keep our bay shorelines clean and trash-free, that dense urban neighborhoods will become greener with trees and rain gardens, and that local children will participate in environmental education programs that teach them to be future watershed leaders.
Unfortunately, without your continued and increased support, our programs are in jeopardy. Government and foundation contributions have not recovered from the 2008 recession and they may never recover. Even in these tough times– which for us has meant an austerity budget and occasional weeks of unpaid furlough– the quality of our programming has continued to grow.
A Challenge Match to the Rescue!
Fortunately, a small group of passionate watershed supporters have stepped up with a Dollar for Dollar Challenge Match. For every dollar you donate, they will donate another!
I know you appreciate our work. Please take a moment to strengthen your partnership with us and help us grow a vibrant Live Green * Give Local community.
If you prefer, you can Become a RainMaker and easily spread your contribution out over the year by going to our website and setting up an automatic monthly or quarterly donation with your credit card.
Thank you for helping us take advantage of this terrific challenge grant opportunity. Thanks for your partnership, and thanks for your local leadership!
Chris, Juliana, Femke, Ricardo, and the rest of The Watershed Project Team
