June Kus-kus-sum Payment Goal Met and Surpassed

On June 29th Project Watershed sent Interfor half a million dollars as the second interim payment for the purchase of the Kus-kus-sum lands. A large portion of the $400,000 awarded by the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program in March went towards this payment, the remainder will be applied to our December payment. Our community target of $100,000 was also a component of the half a million dollar payment – a target we not only met but surpassed! Thanks to the Denton Family gift of $50,000 (read more), the Nomadic Tempest event which brought in $40,000 (read more) and all our other donors we raised $30,000 more than our target. These funds will be applied to our next payment of $100,000 due on December 20th, 2018, putting us at 30% of the way our next community goal. Read more
