Summer Match!

YOU DID IT! WE MADE OUR MATCH!

Thanks to 30 donors, we raised — and topped — our $20,000 summer Match challenge for the endowment. The result is that the Santa Barbara Audubon Society endowment has nearly doubled, helping ensure our financial footing.

We are very grateful to two longtime Audubon friends who initiated the Match with a total donation of $20,000. And we are very grateful to all of you who helped us match it!

Thank you to everyone who contributed!
