“The response from the community has been tremendous” reports Paul Horgen Project Watershed Chair. “What is really great at this stage, is that individuals and groups from our community are starting to take the fundraising on themselves.”
Individuals have had funds donated in lieu of gifts or flowers from weddings, funerals, birthdays, retirements, and other important life events. For these instances, Project Watershed has alternative giving cards available on our website (when you donate in someone else’s name alternative gift cards are used to commemorate the gift). We have also received funds from family estates and foundations such as $50,000 from the Denton Foundation, $25,000 from Bill and Val Heath, $20,000 from Alexandra Calland and $10,000 from the Trevor Ashwell Trust Fund. Project Watershed appreciates all contributions large or small and can offer tax receipts and art as a token of our appreciation. Individuals can contact Project Watershed at email@example.com or 250-703-2871 for more information or to arrange a donation. DONATE NOW
This Estuary Angel match means that every dollar donated is two dollars for the project. Since the project as a whole totals $6.5 million, every dollar donated by community members actually leverages $12 for Kus-kus-sum and our community from other organisations and levels of government. This makes donating or sponsoring Kus-kus-sum a rewarding investment.
