NEST Video & Online Fundraiser!
With the coming of summer solstice, begins the start of NEST summer climbing season 2011. While there are small teams of NEST volunteers already out in the woods, NEST will need its first big influx of volunteer climbers for the summer-long camp out, in mid-July! (If you are already in the region and wish to volunteer now, however, please email us!)
Along with the start of climbing season, comes a great need for funds. All those who work with NEST are unpaid volunteers. However, a summer long camp costs money to maintain. There are mouths to be fed, climbing equipment and camping gear needed, data-taking instruments to acquire, expensive transportation costs, office work expenses, and more!
For this, we ask supporters who might not be able to come out into the forests to contribute financially. You can do this directly through the paypal donation button on this website (receipts for tax purposes available upon request). Or, NEST has also set up an account at Indieagogo. For this, our summer funding goal is $2000!
By contributing through Indieagogo, you will receive different gifts depending on the amounts of money that you pledge to NEST. Forest-themed hoodies, T shirts, and patches are just some of the options!
All donations are tax deductible! We will send recipts upon request.
