Southwest Washington’s day to give!
7 a.m. September 18 – 7 a.m. September 19
Columbia Springs is a proud partner of Give More 24!, our region’s first-ever, 24-hour online giving challenge. Why donate during Give More 24!? Your donation goes farther when you give during this campaign, helping Columbia Springs to earn a portion of a pool of donations from local businesses. If you give between 12 and 2 p.m. you can also help us earn a $1,000 prize. So mark your calendars for September 18th because we will need your help during these 24 hours of local giving! If 100 people each donate $20, 300 kids from local schools will have the opportunity to come to Columbia Springs for hands-on environmental education field trips. So share the joy of giving and ask your friends and family to give what they can, wherever they are, on September 18th. You can go to give-more-24.org to learn more or go to https://www.give-more-24.org/#npo/columbia-springs to donate to Columbia Springs on September 18th.
On Friday August 8th over 100 community members attended Hooked on Nature at Royal Oaks Country Club. The event included live music, a photo booth, a silent auction, and dinner. The fundraiser netted over $41,000 in monetary support for Columbia Springs’ environmental education programs. Revenues raised at the event will be invested in connecting more kids (and adults!) in Clark County with the natural world by engaging them in hands-on experiential learning at Columbia Springs’ 100-acre urban natural area.
