Give in Good Company: Director kicks off campaign with personal pledge.

Today St. Louis Earth Day is embarking on its first-ever individual giving campaign. Over the past few years, we’ve had great success engaging partners from local businesses, governmental entities, professional organizations and the non-profit sector in support of our events and year-round programming – and we are very grateful for their generosity! Thanks to their support, we’ve doubled the number of full-time staff (from two to four!) and added critical part-time positions. This enhancement alone has exponentially increased the capacity of our organization and the impact our programs.

But there is still plenty of work to be done! And so, we are poised to tap into the generosity of St. Louisans to help fund the growth of our organization and sustain the great work we are already accomplishing. Will you join us?

I deeply believe in our organization – I am continually impressed by the dedication of our staff, Board Members and volunteers, a strong indicator of organizations worthy of investment. As long as people feel engaged, valued, and believe in the work they are doing, they will continue to go above and beyond to contribute what they can: time, money, connections, skills, expertise, and all the other odds and ends that result in quality programming. Because I believe in this organization, I am kicking off the campaign with my pledge of $100 to the Friends of St. Louis Earth Day. Will you join me?
