Please Protect Our Up North Water Quality – and Quality of Life
There are many ways to support The Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay. Please see the options below and choose what works best for you and your budget. It doesn’t take a lot to make a big impact!
Members: Our members are the generous people who give at least $35 a year. These donors show us that it doesn’t take a lot of money to make a big impact. There are many different member giving levels and benefits.
Major Donors: This is an exclusive group of donors who have made a strong commitment to the Bay and the work that The Watershed Center does. These people give $250 and above each year and enjoy an invitation to a major donor reception each year to hear updates from our Executive Director, our Baykeeper and dedicated staff. Those at higher giving levels receive additional benefits.
Monthly Giving: Did you know that monthly giving is one of the best ways to help sustain the work we do? It allows us to budget throughout the year, because we are able to depend on a specific amount of money coming in each month. For as little as $10 a month, you could become a sustaining member of our Bay Guardians monthly giving program and support the work we do evenly throughout the year. This also allows you to have an ongoing impact in much smaller monthly increments.
Planned Giving: Members of this society leave a gift to The Watershed Center in their will. Anyone can make a gift of any amount. A bequest is the most common form of gift. Please consult your financial advisor regarding other types of gifts, such as real estate or paid life insurance policies. For more information about setting up planned giving, please contact our Donor Development Coordinator Jonelle Bowers at email@example.com or 231-935-1514 ext. 5
