On #GivingTuesday 2022 help us conserve and preserve the essential wildlife habitat of the San Francisco Bay
San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society wants to wish you all happy holidays. No matter what holiday you may celebrate, as we all gather this season, we share the common values of gratitude, compassion, and giving.
#GivingTuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, falling on November 29, 2022 this year, has become a day to support not-for-profit organizations.
We hope you will consider the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge Complex with a donation to the San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society through PayPal (or you can send a check).
SFBWS is grateful that we have continued to connect with our communities during these last few difficult years. Through these challenges, we have persevered to provide accessible, engaging, and meaningful programs to local schools, organizations, and community members. Our goal is always to foster stewardship of the San Francisco Bay NWR Complex, model sustainability, protect our baylands for endangered species, promote climate resilience, and, most importantly, bring folks together to complete this work. And it is your generous support that has allowed us to continue to do so.
Today is #GivingTuesday, a movement of radical generosity that embodies the true meaning of the holiday season. It is a day dedicated to giving back, paying it forward, and bettering our communities. We hope you will consider us in your giving plan for the end of the year. This year, we are using Mighty Cause so that you can choose which cause you may like to support. These campaigns include:
- Field Trip Bus Funds
- Environmental Education Programs
- Habitat Restoration & Research
- Annual Marsh-In Summer Camp
The San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) Friends group, authorized by Congress to support the education, interpretation, and research activities of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Help us in our mission to promote public awareness and appreciation of the San Francisco Bay and its natural history, and to conserve and preserve the remaining bay lands as essential wildlife habitat.
Your support of our education, interpretation, and research activities is more important than ever. Any amount you’re willing to donate this #GivingTuesday will be greatly appreciated! Donations may be fully tax-deductible (EIN: 94-3039253).
