Mark Your Calendars: May 9th #GiveOzarks – 24 hours of giving to support the future with ORLT
Support the Ozarks and your donation will be matched 2:1 on May 9th during #GiveOzarks, an exciting on-line full day of giving. Starting at 12:01 a.m. early Tuesday morning and ending that night at 11:59 pm, this special on-living giving campaign will raise dollars for ORLT’s Endowment Fund – a long-term lifeline of support to help landowners protect and conserve the Ozarks – forever.
That’s right! For one day only, a challenge match of 2:1 is happening on May 9th. Your gift of $25 will become $75 – a generous supporter challenges ORLT to raise $10,000 for its endowment, a permanent savings account.
#GiveOzarks is also about having fun, reaching goals, and learning more about conservation and the Ozark conservation community.
And that’s not all! Over $100,000 in prize money is up for grabs by the more than 200 organizations participating this year, some of which could be awarded to ORLT during this 24-hour period. Every time a donation is made to ORLT during a separate one-hour time period it increases the chances for ORLT to win top prizes from the event sponsors and the Community Foundation of the Ozarks for the Endowment Fund.
