CFM is looking forward to participating in #GivingTuesday this year. If you haven’t heard, #GivingTuesday is the first Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The day celebrates and encourages giving, whether that is through donations, time or services. This year it falls on December 1.
This #GivingTuesday CFM is focusing on the future of conservation. As we all know, the future depends on our children. It depends on the child who just shot their first buck during youth season. It depends on the child who loves flipping through photos of wildlife. It depends on the child who looks forward to the family camping trip each year.
In order to embrace our future conservationists, CFM is focusing our #GivingTuesday efforts on supporting them. CFM is raising funds for conservation education. One venue CFM is highlighting is a relatively new organization, the Missouri Collegiate Conservation Alliance (MCCA).
MCCA is an organization for college students interested in impacting conservation. They strive to bring awareness to contemporary issues of conservation in Missouri to colleges and universities throughout the state. MCCA unites students to and encourages active student participation in the discussion of conservation policy.
“Giving Tuesday is a way for CFM to highlight the importance of instilling conservation ideals in budding conservationists,” said Brandon Butler, executive director of CFM. “Supporting a great appreciation for conservation early is key in creating lifelong outdoorsmen dedicated to protecting precious natural resources.”
Donations made for #GivingTuesday will go to various aspects of developing, advertising and promoting MCCA and other conservation education endeavors.
