WHAT IS IT? #Giving Tuesday is here and today officially kicks off the giving season! Hopefully you survived Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but this is a day dedicated to charities and for giving back.
WHAT FOR? Between now and December 31, 2014, Cottonwood Institute is committed to raising $20,000 to meet our annual giving goal. This critical funding will help set us up for success in 2015 and enable us to offer inspiring programs like this Flood Restoration Project with Colorado Youth For A Change, our Summer Nature Series with Casa de la Esperanza, the annual Local Lunch hosted by the Earth Task Force, and the Community Adventure Program!
WHY ME? Because you care about youth, education, and the environment, you had someone share the outdoors with you, and you are committed to helping Cottonwood Institute connect high need students to the outdoors and empower them to ignite change in their communities.
