Millard Canyon Fundraising
Shared by a neighbor in The Meadows from Altadena Foothills Conservancy:
I think you’ll be glad to know that we’re almost there. We’re $40,000 shy of our $675,000 goal, but the current landowner has offered to put up $20,000 if we can acquire his land before the end of the month. So if we raise $20,000 to match his $20,000, we’re there! But we need to do it quickly.
The last thing we want to do is impose on your charity. But if you find that you have the means to help us with this last push, we would be so grateful. This has been a long process – AFC tried to acquire the land in 2004 and fell just short, and we’ve been working hard to put together the funding for this go-round for over a year.
200 of you have donated to the project so far, supplementing the “big” funding we’ve gotten from various agencies and environmental groups. If each of you gives another $100, we’d reach our goal. That said, any gift helps, large or small – especially since every dollar you give is being matched by one from the seller.
