We have a concept for a virtual event for our 30th anniversary which involves social distanced discussion between our founders, honoring our deceased founders, live music, and small live auction. My volunteers and board can implement but do not have the skills necessary to plan a virtual event. We are a small grassroots environmental advocacy organization with only 3 part-time staff facing a deficit of 60-90k in revenue needed to support our programs due to cancellations of in-person events.
This event will not happen without a volunteer to help plan. Our annual dinner, which was cancelled due shelter-in-place, typically brings around $25-30k in funds that go to support our Land Use Program, GenOps and any remaining Watershed Program expenses not covered by grant funding. This event will help us bridge the revenue deficit to keep our staff employed and to continue our advocacy work for environmental sustainability.
To preserve, protect and restore the natural and human habitats in Amador and Calaveras Counties for current and future generations.
