Help Trees For Tomorrow Green Our Tree!

Dear Supporter –

2017 is quickly coming to a close, and Trees For Tomorrow would like you to consider making a donation to help prepare today’s youth to be tomorrow’s stewards of our natural world.  

Every school that comes through Trees For Tomorrow’s doors ends their stay by writing thank you notes to the donors who helped supplement their visit. The notes reflect so many things: Gratitude, learning, wonder, adventure, and the excitement of overcoming fears and boundaries. This, I believe, is a testament to the power of immersing kids in the outdoors. And our donors are an important piece of this recipe for success.   You can help inspire that excitement by supporting sustainable management of our natural resources through transformative educational experiences.

Your year-end donation in the amount of $100 or more will support a child’s education in sustainable stewardship of our natural resources at a time when conservation and responsible management is more important than ever before.
 

Recently I had the opportunity to read a thank you note from a child who overcame his fears and began to believe in himself and gain self-confidence by participating in new experiences at Trees For Tomorrow:  

“At the beginning of this trip I was very nervous I was on the verge of tears. But as soon as we started Survival Skills everything changed. I started to believe that I could accomplish things that I had never really even dreamed about doing.”  -Tyler, Sevastopol  

Kids learn a lot at Trees For Tomorrow, and we couple those lessons with fun outdoor activities that keep students engaged, excited and interested in what they’re learning. To teach about responsible forest management, we take students to properly managed forests and show them how to identify trees and collect a variety of data. To learn about water quality, we teach them to canoe on local lakes where they take water samples and see the diversity of life that clean water harbors. To show them how animals flourish in the forests, we teach them to identify tracks and habitat and ask them to take into consideration their surroundings. The lessons children learn yield more than just knowledge – in Tyler’s case, they yield self-confidence as well.  

$100
will fully fund a one-night stay with programming for a child at Trees For Tomorrow.  

While we wish we could provide this learning experience for free, the reality is we can’t. That’s where you come in. Trees For Tomorrow seeks strong, mutually supportive relationships with a variety of partner organizations, corporations, campuses, agencies and individuals to enhance the Trees For Tomorrow experience and advance the Trees For Tomorrow mission. This includes you - our supporters who understand the value of exposing kids to the outdoors, and teaching them how to use our natural resources in a responsible manner.  

Experiences at Trees For Tomorrow are accessible to children from all economic backgrounds and all locales. The lessons they learn here are just as relevant whether they live in an urban setting or in a suburban or rural environment. A healthy environment that includes clean water, trees and wildlife habitat are important no matter where our students come from.  

A student from Green Bay recently wrote about how critical the scholarship support was in allowing him to come to Trees For Tomorrow:  

“… Before I came to my new school my brother went to the hospital a lot! And so we are kinda low on money right now. At my house all of my brothers have jobs. I have 5 brothers. But, you helped me be able to go to camp! Thank you so much…”
 

While this student was forthcoming about his family’s situation, we know there are many who are not as candid. Schools pay what they can afford to be able to bring their students to Trees. But there is a gap between what they can afford to pay, and what it costs us to provide these valuable programs. It’s that gap that we are asking you to help us fill.  

Trees For Tomorrow has been providing educational opportunities to students for over 73 years. We could not have done this without the support of people like you. You can continue making a positive impact on the lives of students by affording them the opportunity to participate in our programs. Your generosity is a critical piece in spreading the message to the next generation.  

Please consider making a donation of $100 or more. These are some examples of what your support can fund: 
  • $100 – Support a full day of education, lodging and meals for one child.
  • $250 – Support a 4-day workshop for one child.
  • $500 – Provide scholarship support to a school.
  • $1,000 – Provide transportation support for a school to come to Eagle River.
  • $2,500 – Help Trees For Tomorrow change the world!  
Reading the thank you notes our students write gives me insight into how we’re changing lives, one student at a time. I hope you are as inspired by their words as I am.  

Your tax-deductible donation of $100 or more will make a huge difference in the life of a student who will take the next step toward being tomorrow’s steward of our natural world.


Your support makes a difference!
