CFM is Supporting Youth Conservationists this #GivingTuesday
Jefferson City, Mo | November 24, 2015 – The Conservation Federation of Missouri (CFM) is supporting the future of conservation this #GivingTuesday. CFM is raising funds to get more college students involved in conservation.
#GivingTuesday is exactly one week from today. It is the first Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The day harnesses the collective power of individuals by celebrating and encouraging giving, whether that is through donations, time or services. This year it falls on December 1.
CFM is raising funds for a new organization, the Missouri Collegiate Conservation Alliance (MCCA). MCCA is an organization for college students interested in impacting conservation. They bring awareness to conservation issues in Missouri to colleges and universities throughout the state. MCCA unites students and encourages active student participation in the discussion of conservation policy.
The accompanying video explains #GivingTuesday and what MCCA is all about. David Calandro, founder and president of MCCA, is featured in the video. More information about David and MCCA can be found here.
“Giving Tuesday is a day about giving back to your community, and CFM plans to do just that,” said Brandon Butler, executive director of CFM. “Through MCCA, CFM will foster an appreciation for conservation in the next generation. Donating to CFM for Giving Tuesday is donating to ensure Missouri’s cherished outdoors are here for generations to come.”
Donations made for #GivingTuesday will go to various aspects of developing, advertising and promoting MCCA and other conservation education endeavors. As #GivingTuesday nears, visit our webpage here for more information and to make a donation to Missouri’s outdoors
