Annual Report and Fundraiser

Annual Report and Fundraiser


a few of you have asked not to receive fundraising messages, but receiving this annual fundraising message is the price you pay for being on my Herp Update e-mail list.  If you would like to be removed from this list, just hit reply with “Unsubscribe” in the subject line.  Also, I have other lists of contributors that I will be contacting soon.  Your name may well be on multiple lists.  My apologies for the the duplicate mailings that will occur.  Still, you could always contribute multiple times :).

It is time for our 2021 Vermont Reptile and Amphibian Atlas Annual Fund Raiser

Two years ago we organized our first fundraiser.  It was motivated by a decline in our regular grant funding and a pressing need to get all our data online for future use and assign accurate latitude and longitude coordinates to older records.  The fundraiser was a huge success, so we tried it again the following year.  We now plan to hold an annual winter fundraiser to raise $20,000 to support HerpAtlas projects that are not adequately funded by our grants.

Our Fundraising Letter and our 2020 Annual Report are attached.
