With only 2 days left in 2009, I want to encourage you to make a tax-deductible donation to the Cottonwood Institute by Thursday, December 31, 2009 because your donations will help us continue to make experiences like this possible:
- Our students created amazing projects that benefited their schools, their community, and the environment like this Community Gardening Project with P.S.1 Charter School in Denver, CO.
- We awarded over $10,000 in scholarships for students to attend once in a lifetime experiences like our Endangered Wolves and Animal Tracking Project this summer.
- Through a unique collaboration with Front Range Earth Force and Gilpin E-8 Elementary School in Denver, our World Water Monitoring Day Project on the South Platte River in downtown Denver was a success.
- New projects like this Organic Gardening Project are opening doors for new collaborations with local schools and community organizations in 2010.
HELP US REACH OUR END OF THE YEAR GOAL:
Your donation will help us offer inspiring programs that get students off the couch, into the outdoors, and challenge them to create Action Projects to improve their schools, the community, and the environment so we can continue “changing the world, one adventure at a time!”
Tax-deductible donations can be made safely and securely online by Clicking Here or by sending a check made payable to Cottonwood Institute to: PO Box 7067, Denver, CO 80207. Please make sure checks are dated before the end of the year!
