We are proud to say it was very successful. Thanks to you – our generous CREW supporters – we received $455 on #GivingTuesday. The CREW Trust was not the only one who had a successful #Givingtuesday, according to Steve MacLaughlin “The attention around #GivingTuesday 2015 reached record levels and online giving grew 52% compared to 2014.” – See more at:http://npengage.com/nonprofit-fundraising/givingtuesday-online-donations-grow-52/#sthash.mZYjQPfw.dpuf

#GivingTuesday, is an international day dedicated to giving back to the community through donations of time, money, talent, food, etc. The CREW Trust chose to create a month-long #GivingTuesday campaign aimed at increasing its Education Fund. The fund’s objectives are to:
- provide resources to local schools for CREW field trips
- provide scholarships to local high-school and college students studying environmental science or other related fields
- provide scholarships for CREW Trust interns, and further support CREW environmental education staff and programs
The Education Fund is our way to create a legacy here in Southwest Florida and to strengthen and support the CREW Trust’s mission.
Thank you for all your support! Remember, you don’t have to give big…just give.
