2022 YEAR-END APPEAL
Cultivating connection and reciprocity with the Earth,
each other and our own true nature.
WOOOOOO HOOOO, Farm Friends!!!
We have fabulous news to share in this season of Giving!
Your generosity is creating a Win-Win-Win situation.
WIN #1 : You helped meet our ROC the DAY goal of raising $2,649 to fill our Environmental Access Fund! THANK YOU!!
WIN #2 : These funds enabled 317 people to attend our nature-based programs who otherwise would not have access, and to compensate our educators - and new Indigenous educators - with a living wage rate.
WIN #3 : Your giving has inspired one of our Shimmering Light Stewards to commit $3,000 in matching funds for new donations that come in between now and December 31st to meet our 2022 Budget!
Like so many individuals and organizations, we have not fully caught up since the pandemic. We have kept our fees steady to enable more participation while we anticipate the full return of groups for overnight retreats--our most profitable offerings. In the meantime, those funds have not been available to maintain our buildings and support ongoing needs.
Our year-end appeal is more important than ever to meet our most urgent needs. Through Dec 31st, every dollar donated will be matched by this generous Steward, up to $3,000!
Your gift will ensure that we can maintain, steward and protect this sanctuary and programming for over 500 humans each year, as well as the rewilding of fields, forests, ponds and streams that now support countless other living beings who call this land home, and those who migrate through.
Thank you for being part of the community that values Shimmering Light and our role in the larger community!
DOUBLE YOUR DONATION here!
Greatest Love and Gratitude from the Shimmering Light Stewards
