‘Tis the season to be Giving! Giving Tuesday is coming up on December 1st and unfortunately due to Covid we will not be able to have an in-person event. However, we hope you will keep us in mind at this time. We are extremely excited that our beautiful building addition is finally finished! Thanks to our amazing donors for all of your support during this process! While we have some grant funding for our exciting new displays (live animals, geology, and a wildlife viewing window), we can still use some help with furnishings and other things to help us make our new space functional. Due to being closed this season, we can also still use help with operational costs. That’s why this year for #GivingTuesday we have 3 ways you can help: by purchasing an item for the Nature & Wildlife Center off our Amazon Wish List (don’t forget to shop through AmazonSmile and make the LEINWC your charity to give back with every purchase!), sponsoring a yearly expense, or making a monetary donation through PayPal. As an added bonus for monetary donations, because of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, you can deduct 100% of up to $300 in charitable contributions made by the end of the year. We greatly appreciate all the support from our wonderful community!
