Grant Update

On an insert in the fall 2001 issue of FOHI’s newsletter Across the Narrows, readers were invited to participate in a matching grant offered by the National Audubon Society for the 2001-2002 Maine Audubon annual campaign.

While all contributions were welcomed, the matching grant stipulated that only dollars from “a new donor or a new member” or from “every increased dollar from someone who has donated in the past” would be matched by National Audubon.

Ginger Jones, Maine Audubon’s development director, passed along the results:

  • Total individual giving for Hog Island: $12,825
  • New or increased amounts NAS will match: $5,245 (of the $12,825 above)
  • Total individual and NAS giving: $18,070
