Fraser River Discovery Centre has launched its annual year-end fundraising campaign a little earlier than past years.
The Giving Circle offers different levels of support, which come differing levels of supporter benefits such as annual passes and tickets, free entry to events and engagement activities at the FRDC. All donations come with an official tax receipt.
“COVID-19 has had a big impact on our revenues this year, given that we had to cancel most school programs, engagement events and celebrations,” said Stephen Bruyneel, the centre’s director of external relations and development. “While we have been able to stay in operation and re-open due to annual sponsorships and grants from our corporate and government partners, additional corporate and personal donations are needed as we move into 2021.”
The Giving Circle campaign runs until the end of the 2020. For more information or to donate, go to www.fraserriverdiscovery.org/givingcircle.
“We recognize that the Fraser River is important to people for many different reasons and our Giving Circle program reflects that fact,” Bruyneel said in a press release. “Do you want to support the RiverSchool programs that have served over 20,000 students since we started them over a decade ago? Or exhibits like Journey through the Working River and Our Bones are Made of Salmon? Or even the Fraser River Dialogues, which have engaged people on such important issues as flood control, trade and Fraser River salmon? These – and more activities – can be helped by your donations.” Janice Bannister
