Fund Our Joshua Tree  Programs 2017

May 26, 2017 · Posted in Call To Action, Climber Alert, Events, General, News · Comments Off on Fund Our Joshua Tree ¬†Programs 2017 

As funding becomes more of a challenge for all of us, FOJT is reaching out to you, our climbing community, for help. We are looking for knowledge on grant monies, endowment opportunities, donations, matching funds or work related charities. Employers could use our 501(c)(3) status for tax benefits. We need to find new revenue streams as we support more programs such as

Joshua Tree Climbing Stewards

Climbers Coffee

Climb Smart

H.A.R.P. (Hardware/Anchor Replacement Program)

In addition, capital improvements are a priority as Joshua Tree Search and Rescue will need a new vehicle in the next 5 to 7 years.

We ask that you do a little legwork for us: if you know of monies that might be available please make a few phone calls or emails and find us a contact person. We will take it from there. Tee us up at info@friendsofjosh.org or use our social stream DM’s – facebook Friends Of Joshua Tree, twitter @JTreeFriends, or Instagram @joshuatreefriends 

Thank you for your help and support!

Friends Of Joshua Tree.
