Why People Donate to SAVE THE FROGS!

My number one rule of fundraising is that “Fundraising is critical to mission success”. Over the past decade I have helped raise more than one million dollars for worldwide amphibian conservation efforts. As most of SAVE THE FROGS! funding comes via donations from individuals (rather than the government, corporations, foundations or other nonprofits), it is important to know what actually motivates people to donate. I can think of a multitude of reasons people should donate to SAVE THE FROGS!. For instance:

  • Your donation funds efforts that protect amphibian habitat and make our environment cleaner, healthier, and more beautiful.
  • Your donation helps SAVE THE FROGS! staff and volunteers educate thousands of people about amphibians, in a time when the schools and universities are severely lacking in terms of environmental education.
  • Donating fulfills a general human desire to do good, and thus makes you feel good.
  • Donating provides you a potential tax deduction, ensuring that more of your hard earned money gets used for environmental protection and less goes to governmental waste.

But why do people actually donate to SAVE THE FROGS!?

The Fund For The Future Of The Frogs

With thousands of endangered frogs needing our assistance, one of our goals at SAVE THE FROGS! is to ensure that our organization has the funds to exist far into the future. The Fund For The Future Of The Frogs is one of our primary strategies for achieving long-term financial security.

The Fund For The Future Of The Frogs is a reserve fund intended to ease financial burden during tough times and help SAVE THE FROGS! flourish during more prosperous times. The fund is comprised of stocks, bonds and mutual funds, and held in a SAVE THE FROGS! brokerage account that is dedicated exclusively to long-term growth. Assets in the fund are highly diversified and managed with very low fees. To ensure the perpetuity of the fund, SAVE THE FROGS! uses only the annual interest earned from the fund unless there is a critical need for immediate use of the funds. 

We invite and encourage you to contribute to The Fund For The Future Of The Frogs. Donations to the fund are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. You can learn about the tax benefits of donating stocks, bonds or mutual funds here. Read on to learn more about The Fund For The Future Of The Frogs and how you can contribute.
