Today, December 1st, we're joining a national day of generosity, "#GivingTuesday" and kicking off the giving season. Instead of asking you for money, with the #GivingTuesday campaign, we are asking you contribute a message that lets us know what you value most about PEPA, and our mission to protect the environment and preserve the character of our special community.
With just a few minutes of your time, you can help deepen the impact of our mission through the following ways:
Your messages and emails will be shared with other members, potential funders and our board and will play a role in how PEPA serves in the future.
We appreciate your consideration and help in kicking off the giving season; and thank you in advance if you are further considering including PEPA in your year end charitable giving plan. The PEPA holiday appeal letter should arrive in your mailbox in a few days. It includes giving directions and a return address envelope. You may also download a donation form and giving directions by clicking here: printable form.
Finally, we are putting the final touches on the PEPA Annual Report 2015 that summarizes advances made and will send you an email notice when it is posted on our website.
The Purchase Environmental Protective Association (PEPA) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the environment and preserving the character of our community.
By monitoring development proposals and informing the public on local environmental issues facing Purchase and the local area, PEPA’s involvement and documentation of the historical, cultural, and natural features of its unique landscape serves as a vital resource to the community.
#GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media and the generosity and gratitude of people that brings about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to consider and address local challenges. Read more.
