2011 Year End Appeal from Wyland

Clean Water Can’t Wait! | Ends December 31, 2011 (midnight)

Aloha Friend,

As 2011 quickly comes to a close, I look back and reflect on our many friendships and the continued growth of our programs.  Throughout the year, the foundation provided community environmental education and outreach, supported charities and individuals who make a difference in saving our planet, and partnered with others who share our same vision. As a reward for our efforts, we were recognized by the Orange County Department of Education for our “Outstanding Contributions to Education.”

 

Help us continue this highly rewarding work by making your 2011 Year-End Donation by December 31st.  As a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, your charitable contribution is tax-deductible.  By supporting the Wyland Foundation‘s efforts, your year-end tax-deductible contribution will provide environmental art, science, and community programs that inspire children and their families to protect the future of our planet.

 

Clean water can’t wait! ……please ACT NOW!  (Note “2011 Year-End Gift” with your donation.)

 

Please mail in your tax deductible gift, donate through our website, or call our office to speak with a member of our staff.

 

We sincerely appreciate your support. It is through generous contributions from caring people, such as yourself, that make our programs possible.

 

Wishing you and your family a warm and happy holiday season!
