Friends of Skagit Beaches has made great progress in raising money to take advantage of a matching grant opportunity with a goal of raising a total of $10,000. An anonymous donor offered to match up to $5,000 in donations all of which are designated to support the Coastal Volunteer Partnership at Padilla Bay (CVP), which is our primary funding grant provided annually to support this important community volunteer program. The other major fundraising effort that supports CVP is our Fidalgo Shoreline Academy. With the move of this event from spring to fall, the matching grant fills a critical void in funding to support our planned donations to CVP in 2017.
We still need to raise about $900 to take full advantage of the match and raise the full $10,000 for CVP. If you haven’t already donated to the cause, please help us reach the goal!
How can you donate? Donate online using PayPal or mail a check to FOSB, P.O.Box 481, Anacortes, WA 98221. Be sure to include a note designating your gift to the "CVP Matching Grant". As always we thank you for your support, we couldn't do our work without you.
