I am volunteer/staff at The Wildwood Conservation and Retreat Center in Sonoma County. This not-for-profit has a 40 year history of serving the San Francisco Bay Area/Russian River gay community with retreats, workshops and other events. In addition, maintaining 210 pristine acres of Northern California land for the benefit of everyone as well as for use in our spiritual growth.
In short, this organization needs several thousand dollars to help recover from the recession as well as keep current on taxes, utilites etc...
Then there are capital projects like raising the money to pay for a bathroom installation in the chef's cottage. She's lived here for seven years without one and we want to keep her!
So in addition to my efforts with donor outreach, I want to tug at the heartstrings of my virtual network.
Wildwood is home to groups such as The Body Electric School, Center for Sacred Studies, Positive Being and Men's Inner Journey. Men and women come here for yoga, movement, breathwork and other activities for personal growth and community building.
All the money raised here will help tremendously as I work to expand the ways Wildwood can raise money and be sustainable. Thank you for taking the time to consider this proposition that is near and dear to me. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have.
