Today is Giving Tuesday! Please join us in building a stronger Sierra by helping us reach our goal of $20,000. The money we raise today and through the end of the year will go directly to building economic, environmental, and social resilience in communities throughout the Sierra.

Your support will help our region overcome recent challenges and harness the opportunities that will grow the Sierra’s economic backbone, restore our natural resources, build a resilient climate, elevate rural issues, and build strong communities.

We’re very passionate about the region we serve and the work we do. Our staff is grateful for your donation. It’s because of our community’s support that we are able to make an impact in the Sierra. 

Your donation is critical to our work. Read on to learn what your generous contribution means to each of us: 

We need your help to continue this work and not only help the Sierra recover from the challenges of 2020, but bounce back stronger than ever. You can click here to donate now. Please help make our Giving Tuesday a success by sharing it with your family and friends!
