If you haven’t heard, On Pasture is having a Fund Drive and we need your help.
On Pasture is funded by a Conservation Innovation Grant from the Natural Resources Conservation Service and it requires us to raise $15,000 in match from our readers every year. We have just 2 weeks to go this year, and need just $2,272. If you haven’t already made a contribution, now is your chance to help us finish strong.
We think that one of the most important services On Pasture can provide is helping you keep money in your pocket. That’s why we’ve been busy translating science into practices you can use and sharing experiences from your farming and ranching colleagues. We want to make sure you have information that tells you whether you should spend your money doing a new thing, or how you can keep more of it in your pocket by doing something differently. It’s nice to get that information from someone who has tested an idea and worked out the kinks, letting us learn from their successes and mistakes.
We’re so focused on keeping money in your pocket, that asking you to take a little bit out and send it our way is hard. But the reality is that if we don’t ask for your help, On Pasture can’t keep going.
One way to help us meet our match this year, and for the rest of this grant, is by becoming an On-Going Supporter at $5 a month. That’s $60 every year for our match requirement. PayPal will charge your credit card once a month. And if something changes in your life and that no longer works for you, you can cancel further payments. You get two great benefits from that – first, you can ignore all future fund drives, and second, to thank you, Shannon Hayes has donated a limited number of her cookbooks which we’ll be tickled to mail to you. Just tell us if you’d like “The Grassfed Gourmet” or “Long Way on a Little” when you’re signing up.
Of course, that doesn’t work for everybody. So for other ways to contribute, click on over to our support page here.
We need just $2,272 more to meet our match and we have just 2 weeks to do that. Please help if you can.
