Fall 2015 E-Challenge

Update: We did it!

69 donors gave $10,255 in 11 days to meet our 2015 Fall E-Challenge goal. Because we reached our goal, a committed group of park friends have teamed up to offer a matching grant of $10,000.

Thank you to everyone who helped us make our challenge goal!

Bee at the Wild Gardens of Acadia - Friends of Acadia
Dear Friends:

Have you heard the buzz?

Donate now!With your help, Friends of Acadia will make more than $1 million in grants this year for the benefit of Acadia National Park—for the second year running. Those dollars help to maintain Acadia’s historic trails and carriage roads, and to protect Acadia’s lands, waters, wildlife, and starry skies. They help to engage the next generation of Acadia visitors in a lifelong relationship with this magnificent place. We couldn’t do all this without you—as a member of Friends of Acadia, you’re important to Acadia and our work here.

Acadia is important to our members, too. As we get ready to kick off our fall 2015 Annual Fund drive, a small group of committed park friends has pledged a $10,000 challenge grant that we must match by Tuesday, October 13. This will give our fall appeal a $20,000 boost, to make certain we’re able to work hard (like that busy bee above) for Acadia National Park.

Click here to donate now—we have just 11 days!

We appreciate all your support for Friends of Acadia, and I hope you take pride in all that we accomplish for Acadia with your help.

With gratitude,

David MacDonald
Friends of Acadia President & CEO


PS: If you contribute to meet our fall challenge now, we won’t mail you an Annual Fund appeal letter later this month. Good for you, good for us, good for the environment, and good for Acadia most of all!
