Donate Tuesday May 2 at

Help us get the word out about this great day!  #PalmettoGivingDay  #PGD2017  #ShowYouCarePGD on Facebook and and Twitter.

your support will help us reach some ambitious goals we have set for this year, including expanding our education programs staff to keep up with the growing demand for our science learning programs.

Your support will also allow us to continue our advocacy work, and engage even more people in stewardship of our coastal natural resources.  We want everyone to know about the importance of our national forest and wildlife refuges  to wildlife and to people, and about the responsibility we all have in protecting these places and our communities.

In a time when many of us are frustrated with the lack of political support for conservation your support Tuesday May 2 can make a real difference right here along our coast.

Giving on Tuesday May 2 also makes your donation go twice as far because every dollar we raise on PGD, up to $12,000, will be matched by the Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation and other generous donors.  That means a $100 gift becomes $200.  We have an ambitious goal of raising $30,000 this year and we won’t be able to do this without you.

Think giving day looks a little different this year?  It does. This year’s Palmetto Giving Day is truly a grassroots effort begun by nonprofits in Georgetown County.  Thirty-three organizations have been working together these past months to make this day a reality and we are honored to be working with such an amazing group of organizations.

Please know that although Palmetto Giving Day is a grassroots effort that began in Georgetown County your gift will support our work along 100 miles of the South Carolina coast.
