Giving Tuesday is here! If you aren’t familiar, #GivingTuesday is a global initiative using social media to share foundations of humanism in the giving spirit. Opportunities are available for your donation to be matched and double the benefit. As an example, Facebook is matching the first $7 million dollars donated today through fundraisers on that platform. (Link to ours!)
2019 has been a BIG YEAR for Preserve Burnet Woods! Our efforts have debuted invasive removal programming and new nature education missions, more than 78 days of ‘something to do in the park’, broader outreach, and almost 800 hours of IN-PARK volunteer service to make Burnet Woods a place to be in our communities. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit and a 100% volunteer organization built from a grassroots love of nature and parks. However, there is no doubt that plenty of work remains to be done in Burnet Woods.
On #GivingTuesday, we are asking for your financial support. You can contribute through our Facebook fundraiser above, through the donate button on this website, or by mailing a check to Preserve Burnet Woods, P. O. Box 20191, Cincinnati, Ohio 45220.
We would like to fully fund our Nature Days program, rent equipment to aid in invasive removal efforts, and while it isn’t as donation-sexy as nature hikes and birdwatching, we would like to have sufficient funds to improve our website and cover insurance for all of these things. Hitting our funding goals would also allow us to consider contributions to capital improvement efforts and take a few leaps forward in the programming that we offer, while keeping it affordable if not entirely free. We know that there are a lot of opportunities to give today, and we appreciate you considering Preserve Burnet Woods.
The mission of Preserve Burnet Woods is to protect, promote, celebrate and sustain Burnet Woods as a community-supported greenspace and urban oasis.
