Fall, 2019 fund-raising campaign for LSPWA

posted Jan 25, 2020, 3:50 PM by Peter Else

Our organization has very low expenses and overhead, because our board of directors, its officers, and our head administrators are all volunteers.  This is truly a grass-roots conservation group that gets a lot of bang for each buck. 

Most of our out-of-pocket expenses go to court costs and our membership contribution to the Lower San Pedro Collaborative, a unified conservation effort that involves 19 other groups and agencies associated with the San Pedro River watershed. Since the announcement of our upcoming 2020 general account budget at our Fall meeting of November 9th, 2019., we exceeded our fund-raising goal, with a total of $5704 in donations, thanks to the very generous contributions of 8 landowners in the lower San Pedro watershed and two artists based in Globe, Arizona. 

Thanks to the following donors in our end-of-year fund-raising campaign:

Catherine Gorman & Phil Hedrick, landowners in Aravaipa Canyon

Anonymous landowner couple from the middle San Pedro watershed

Peter Else, landowner living on the River 4 miles north of Mammoth

Daniel Baker, landowner living on the River in the north Cascabel area

Frank & Nora Balaam, artists based in Globe, Arizona, with gallery showings at the Ventana Fine Art Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico and the Cobre Valley Center for the Arts in Globe.
