The best free environmental training in existence
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
SAVE THE FROGS! Academy is in full swing, providing free environmental training to motivated students from around the world, and archiving class videos on the SAVE THE FROGS! YouTube Channel so that thousands of future environmentalists can learn about amphibian conservation and become more skilled and active in saving the planet's endangered wildlife. I do not know of any other environmental organization on the planet that provides free classes open to all interested students anywhere on the planet regardless of their race, gender, socio-economic status, citizenship, educational background or geographical location. Please help me pass on the knowledge I've learned over the past decade so that we can ensure we have THOUSANDS of people on the planet who know MORE about saving frogs than I do.
Today's SAVE THE FROGS! Academy class: Register Now
Today at Wednesday August 21st from 11am-12pm San Francisco time I will lead a class all about fundraising!
If we want frogs saved, we need money raised, so our movement relies on having a supporter base that is highly capable of raising funds for necessary work. Today we will discuss fundraising, and provide ideas for how you can help us raise money to support our worldwide efforts, and how you can raise money to support your own local amphibian conservation efforts. Special guest SAVE THE FROGS! Board Member Sienne Hayes will discuss the individual contributions drive she organized last Save The Frogs Day. She will share her strategies and as well as tips on what did and did not work. SAVE THE FROGS! Advisory Committee Chairman Michael Starkey will also join us to discuss raising funds at informational tables and live events. If you want to help raise money for the frogs, of if you have ever dreamed of running your own nonprofit, the fundraising experience you learn through this SAVE THE FROGS! Academy class will prove invaluable. Please join us. Meets online 11am-12pm San Francisco Time. Register here. Get lots of fundraising tips at www.savethefrogs.com/fundraise
