Kicking Off the Giving Season

We need you to know that Alpine Watershed Group truly depends on the generosity of those that believe in our good work. AWG's track record is what enables our organization to be so successful at getting grants. But grants do not cover all of our expenses. There are the programmatic expenses—like leading our robust and ever-expanding citizen science monitoring program, addressing weed and erosion issues, and making sure AWG is ever-present to teach about Alpine County's sublime watersheds at community events. There are the mundane administrative costs, like bookkeeping, tax preparation, and rent. And there is fundraising. It takes staff time to pursue each grant for priority projects and our ongoing programs. Donations are absolutely essential to, quite literally, keep our door open.
So as your mailboxes fill with asks from many worthy organizations, please take a moment to make your annual contribution to help us protect the meadows, forests, and rivers of the Sierra Nevada in Alpine County. You can donate via credit card or PayPal at www.alpinewatershedgroup.org or you can mail your check to AWG at PO Box 2737, Markleeville, CA 96120.
We are thankful to be your partners in this beautiful place, and we are grateful for all of the ways our community supports us.
