We’re Better Together
Every species on this planet deserves not just to survive, but to thrive! Every species deserves a habitat to call home, safe migration corridors to have access to food and mates, and concerned citizens to ensure that they won’t have to struggle for survival now or ever. By working together, we can make a difference keeping the species in our region safe – not just for today, but for generations to come. From volunteer projects to citizen science endeavors, we understand that we’re better together.
This giving season, considering joining the RMW team to ensure that the species in the Southern Rocky Mountains thrive in 2018 and beyond!
Ways to join the team this giving season
RMW participates in a number of giving programs, so you can give the way you are most comfortable:
Make a Donation: Make a one time donation, or schedule a weekly, a monthly, a quarterly, or yearly donation through our Colorado Gives page! You can even decide what program you’d like to see your donation support.
Send Us a Gift: RMW is expanding our citizen science program, and that means we need some equipment. Check out our Amazon Wish List and consider buying us a present! And, if you shop through AmazonSmile to benefit Rocky Mountain Wild, your purchase will even give us a little donation too!
Give $5 and Get 5 Friends: Don’t have a lot of money to donate? Any amount helps. And if you can donate $5 to the cause and get five friends to match your gift, that could go a long way! Plus, $25 becomes $50 with our current match! If you need help setting up your fundraiser, feel free to email Chris, who would be more than happy to help.
Give the Gift of You: Pledge your time! Volunteer duties could include support at events, science in the field during the 2018 field season, citizen science projects you can do from home, or joining our online ambassador team spreading the word about what RMW does to protect the threatened and endangered species and critical habitats under our care! Download and fill out our Volunteer Application and send it to Chris to give the gift of you this giving season.
Tell Us Your Story: RMW staff can go on and on about how important our work is, but we’re super biased. Your story would be so much more compelling. Send Chris a photograph of yourself (or a photograph that represents you if you are camera shy) and your story of how you found out about RMW, what programs or species are most important to you, and why you love giving to RMW. We will share those stories on our #unselfie page and social media sites and hopefully inspire more people to take action, volunteer their time, or give to support our programs!
A generous donor has offered to match donations!
A generous donor, Green Waves Fund, has offered to match, dollar-for-dollar, any donation made by a new donor or any increased donation made by a previous donor this giving season up to $10,000! Be sure to donate today in support of your favorite program and it will be matched dollar-for-dollar.
Where your donation goes
Your donation goes a long way to protect wild lands and wildlife in the Rocky Mountain region. In fact, you can decide just where that money is spent! Choose between the following program areas:
- Friends of Wolf Creek
- Vail Pass Wildlife Corridor
- Oil and Gas Lease Monitoring
- Front Range Pika Project
- Healthy Habitats Program
- 100 Women for the Wild
Inspire Others to Give
Everyone has a reason they give to RMW. Now is the perfect time to share your story and why you are supporting RMW and all of the wildlife RMW protects. Snap an #UNselfie – a picture of something that represents your reason or a sign that says “I’m giving because…” and share it on Instagram, Facebook, and/or Twitter with the hashtags #unselfie #coloradogives or #IgavetoRMW.
We’ll be reposting the pictures we receive and we thank you for choosing to share yours. If you want, you can also use our Twibbon!
Thank you again for your generosity. Together we can protect the wildlife and wild lands of the Rocky Mountain region. Better Together!
