Dear Riveredge Community,
Wow. I have to tell you, this morning I feel a combination of gratitude and astonishment that is hard to put into words.
For Giving Tuesday, we created an initial goal of fundraising $5,000. Then based on your commitment, your leadership, we felt emboldened to double that goal to $10,000. Well…you completely surpassed that benchmark, and you’ve successfully tripled the Riveredge Giving Tuesday fundraising goal and reached a grand total of MORE THAN $15,000!
This year has been a challenge for Riveredge, just as it has been for everyone. I can’t tell you how much this means to the Riveredge staff to have you in our corner. We’re so excited to begin maximizing these funds to improve our programs and experiences for students and families, and to increase our efforts to restore the land.
Just as we’ve welcomed families to learn and explore across these trails, invited school field trip groups and homeschoolers to embrace this outdoor learning laboratory, and empowered local educators through our Scientist in Residence program – you’ve responded with that same commitment to community.
THANK YOU for being a part of Riveredge, and for supporting the growth that radiates from this vital 379-acre community asset. When it matters most, you’ve come together and offered more support than we even imagined.
From all of us at Riveredge, a heartfelt THANK YOU!
Keep Smiling and Get Outside!
Riveredge Executive Director
