Gila Watershed is joining the global GivingTuesday movement!

Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Donations made now until December 3rd will count towards our GivingTuesday goal!

What is GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday, taking place on December 1st, is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage giving and to celebrate generosity worldwide.

Following the retail events of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, nonprofit organizations rally their supporters for a day of maximum impact. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day, and touches every person on the planet.

How is Gila Watershed Partnership participating?

Our GivingTuesday Campaign: GWP internships for local youth in 2021

We believe that conserving our natural resources goes hand in hand with economic opportunity. Our youth are the future for preserving our natural heritage in this desert region. You can help by donating to reach our goal. Every dollar donated goes toward local youth opportunities to gain experience in restoration, horticulture, leadership, and STEM education through hands-on projects and learning. Join us to help our local youth!

Benefits of internships include:

  • Interns will learn restoration, horticulture and natural science by working directly with GWP staff in the Gila Native Plant Nursery and in the field.
  • Interns will learn leadership and professional skills through hands-on work and mentorship.
  • Interns will explore their interests by working on a variety of projects and by interacting with land managers, biologists, and industry leaders.
  • Internships benefit the local community by providing jobs and experience to local youth.

Goal: $5,000
