Welcome Founding Member Mountaineers!
Our First Member Drive Was A Great Success!
Our membership campaign was launched mid-July with the goal of raising $25,000 by September 30, 2017. This was an opportunity to not only make a contribution to support Wallowology’s program and events, but also to become a founding member. Potential members could choose a mountain peak to climb with a corresponding value.
“I think people enjoyed scoping out the heights of each of the mountain peaks and then making their pick,” said Joan Gilbert, Director of Arts & Exhibits. “We will have a list of Founding Member Mountaineers and a graphic of the peak they each climbed added to our Donor Wall. It will be a fun addition!”
Wallowology surpassed the goal of $25,000 in 10 weeks and raised $27,312!
“We made steady progress and then with about three weeks left, our Board of Trustees announced that they would match all additional membership contributions up to $5,000,” said Judy Goodman, Educational Programs Coordinator, “That kicked the promotion into high gear, and our Wallowology supporters sure came through for us!” The opportunity to become a Founding Member Mountaineer continues to the end of the year and we welcome all interested to join this expedition we call Wallowology!
