Annual Giving Campaign

The Annual Giving Campaign of the Carolina Wetlands Association kicks-off this week. Each week donors will be entered into a drawing for gifts cards and other items as a thank you. Every $5 you donate will give you an entry into the drawing. A winner will be drawn each Saturday starting Saturday, November 23 and ending on Saturday, December 22.

You can make donations through Pay Pal Giving Fund or you can mail us a check. Click here for the mailing address.

New for 2020, we are offering sponsorships for businesses and organizations who want to show their support our mission. Two levels are available: Gold Level for donations greater than $1000 and Silver Level for donations between $500 and $1000. Sponsors will be recognized on our website and at events. More information is available on our Sponsorship page.

The 2020 Giving Campaign is needed to support the implementation of our 2019 -2022 Strategic Plan that was adopted earlier this year. We need your help to make this plan a reality.

We need your support!

Dear Carolina Wetlands Supporter:

The wetlands of the Carolinas are worth fighting for. We need a renewed appreciation of the value of our wetlands, in terms of the services they provide to us such as clean water, flood control, critical habitat, mitigation of sea level rise, carbon storage, shoreline stabilization, and more!

The Carolina Wetlands Association (CarWA) was formed to promote the value of our wetlands to general citizens, students, and law makers. Since our incorporation in June 2015, we have over a hundred supporters, a strong Board of Directors, several active committees, and involvement by some of the best names in wetland science and policy. We are a young organization, but growing fast and becoming noticed!

Our next major step is to become a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization through the IRS. We are working with the UNC Community Development Law Clinic on the application and we expect to submit it to the IRS by the end of January 2016. We need this status to apply for grants available to us.

This is where you can help. In addition to our 501(c)3 application ($850 fee), we are currently developing promotional materials, sponsoring a conference, and maintaining a website. While we thank all our volunteers who are giving their time, we continue to need funds to cover these costs. Please consider making a donation to the Carolina Wetlands Association at this important time.

Thank you for your support!
