We ask for your support in the Lloyd Center for the Environment’s 2014 Annual Fund. Our goal is to raise $120,000 to support the research, education and outreach programs the Lloyd Center provides to our community and we cannot do so without your assistance and generosity.
During its over 30 years as an outstanding community resource, the Lloyd Center’s programs and geographical scope of services has grown exponentially. We rely on your tax-deductible contribution to continue our important environmental work.
• Over 100,000 students taught in our education programs since 2006;
• Over 100 professional educators taught this year alone;
• Over 25,000 visitors from 40 states and 13 countries;
• Over 25 years of monitoring threatened and endangered species;
• Over five miles of hiking trails free and open to the public 365 days a year from dawn to dusk.
WHAT YOUR ANNUAL FUND DONATION WILL DO:
• $50 will provide a scout group with an environmental education program;
• $100 will feed our resident Screech owl, used in education programs, for one month;
• $500 will provide a week-long summer science program to a high-need student;
• $5,000 will provide a year-long education program to an entire class;
• $20,000 will underwrite the cost of our highly-trained education and outreach staff for a month.
LLOYD CENTER PROGRAMS MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY:
“This is the BEST DAY of my life. I’ve never had a day like this before!” – Coastal Field Study student age 10, from Fall River, MA
“It’s a wonderful, beautiful outdoor place that brings family and nature together! I learned so much today and on my field trip.” — Family Fun Fest participant age 9, from Holliston, MA
With its unwavering commitment to environmental education, outreach and research, the Lloyd Center fills a critical environmental niche in the SouthCoast and throughout New England. We count on your generosity to provide our much-needed services.
Please consider increasing your annual support of the Center, so together we can continue to monitor threatened and endangered species in our region, keep our Visitor Center open and free to all community members, and offer unique, hands-on experiences to all students, including many with very limited access to quality environmental science education.
