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.

How A Six Year Old Raised Hundreds Of Dollars For The Frogs

Six year old frog lover Justin from California has raised over $500 for SAVE THE FROGS!

His mom describes how: “Justin has always loved frogs since he was a baby and his first froggy blanket (that he still sleeps with nightly). He loves to collect frog toys, draw frog pictures, and go on hikes to look for tadpoles and frogs in creeks. When Justin heard that frogs were endangered, he wanted to help. We decided he could sell little toy frogs for $1.00 and give it to a charity that will help protect frogs in many ways. We went to the library and checked out several books about frogs so we could educate his class and friends about them. Justin even presented to his kindergarten class at Westside Neighborhood School in Los Angeles and made a poster to tell his classmates about little ways they can help. He reminded them to reduce, reuse, and recycle and not to litter or ever eat frog legs!”
