Can you believe it? It’s been only one short year since we started building the first dome, the Education Dome, and look what we have already accomplished.
Yes, it’s been a big year and our successes have been the result of a lot of hard work by our many volunteers and the generosity and support of individuals, businesses and organizations throughout the area. Thank you.
But we have much to accomplish in the year ahead and, like other non-profits, the GGP must create a budget that accurately estimates income and expenses. Expenses are easy, particularly the fixed type, unexpected not so easy. But income is just plain hard to estimate …. Unless there is a fixed income. Thus was born the idea of a Sustaining Membership Program.
You, our supporters, both business and individuals, have been extremely generous but your giving does not occur on a regular predictable basis and this is what we would like to change with our Sustaining Membership Program. Please consider your bottom line – a monthly amount that you can afford – and sign up. Give us the predictability that will allow us to go to the next level.
We are and have been 100% volunteer driven. To accomplish our goals of the 2nd and 3rd domes and surrounding gardens, we must have a staff person and while we have been very successful with grant funds for construction, funds for salary are almost non-existent and always for a limited period. We must hire a half time employee and can only do that with a predictable income. Become a Sustaining Member at any level and you become a supporter we can depend upon and you will receive:
Enter at the $20/month level and you will enjoy these additional special privileges !!!
Enter at the $21/month level and in addition to all of the above privileges, you will benefit from the 20% Colorado State Enterprise Zone income tax credit available with a $250 donation. Please keep in mind that to benefit from this tax credit your donation must be made within a tax year.
Of course, if the Sustaining Membership Program is not for you, we continue to welcome you as a valuable annual member at $25 and to accept your donations at whatever level you might chose.
Please give serious thought to becoming a GGP Sustaining Member, a partner in our continuing mission to educate the community in sustainable agricultural practices by producing food year-round using local renewable energy.
