Fundraiser Needed

The eagles are working on their nests - and it's time for Hancock Wildlife Foundation to build up the nest egg that we'll need to cover our costs for the coming year.

Here's a link to David's post from June of last year discussing projects and costs - click here - to give an idea of what is needed. I'm sure there will be some changes for the 2015-2016 cycle, but the general amounts needed will likely be similar.

In previous years, several of us have organized projects that have raised some money - the Adopt-A-Nest campaign and the Annual Matching Drive come to mind - but what we really need is a volunteer or small group of volunteers who can look at the big picture and develop and implement a plan that will reach more than our core members, and will raise a much larger percentage of the money we need.

We've all come to eagle watching from a variety of places - and I'm hoping there are a few people who have the sort of experience we need, and would be willing to use their skills to help us keep the cams streaming.

If you're interested, please contact Karen Bills -
Thank You

It's that time of year when we need to start designing the Hancock Wildlife Foundation (HWF) calendar for 2016. For that we need a volunteer who knows how to do this on a computer. The photos that will be sent to HWF for consideration will be scrutinized by David Hancock who will then select the ones he wants the calendar designer to use.

In the past we were fortunate enough to have one of our members, who is a designer, donate her time to produce the 2011 - 2014 calendars and they were beautiful. Last year she had to retire from this volunteer project and someone else volunteered who did not have a PC. Therefore, at the last minute, David Hancock had to hire someone and the cost of producing the calendar made it less than what we would call a "fundraiser". As beautiful as our calendars are, if they do not bring us in a profit then it is unfair to ask those involved to put in the hours to produce it.

We also are in great need of a professional fundraiser to volunteer their time to help with fundraising at HWF this year. We are now in our tenth year of streaming the eagle web cams and our forum admins and mods have run out of ideas. Our expenses always far exceed our yearly costs so we are in great need of attracting some major funding. However we also need ideas for smaller campaigns as well.

If you can volunteer to design the calendar or help with fundraising please email
