Check out the just updated fundraising banana! Thanks to a $5,000 grant from the Hugh and Jane Ferguson Foundation, the total for our fundraising is up to $13,435!
With 68 days to go, we are $31,565 away from our ultimate goal and three more chimpanzee-proof windows.
Now is the time to really get moving on those fundraising ideas you have in the back of your head and spreading the word about our 2nd Anniversary Fundraising. If you need inspiration, here are a couple of examples of supporters already raising funds:
- Margaret Parkinson’s firstgiving page. Margaret is giving away art cards with prints of the Cle Elum Seven chimpanzees with a $30 donation.
- Tamela’s Art Under Glass Etsy store. Tamela is donating all net proceeds from sales from now until the end of June of all of the handmade jewelry and other items for sale through her Etsy store. She’ll be adding more items, so check back often.
And, just because I had so much fun keeping you in suspense, we do have other exciting news unrelated to the anniversary fundraising. We’ll be sending out a e-newsletter soon with information about the great stuff that is going on. Sign up if you aren’t already.
