171 to 350 in 90 Days Is Our Goal!

Out of our mailing list of 935, the Coalition has 171 financially supporting members. We’ll be honest, that’s not a lot, so we’ve set a goal of 350 by January 31, 2012. And to help us reach that goal, we have an amazing matching challenge that’s a gift to our whole community.

If you become a new member by the January deadline, every dollar of your membership will be doubled! (Up to $10,000.00!) That’s money that will be used to further a green, sustainable and resilient Ojai Valley for all of us now and in the future.
