Campaign 300:
A Vision for Our Environment and for Future Generations

The Nicodemus Wilderness Project has been operating for FREE!

Since our inception in 1999, we have been operating the entire Nicodemus Wilderness Project without a single paid position. Thousands of youth volunteers completed environmental projects around the world as part of this massive recruitment, planning, and mentoring effort. However, the launch is now complete and we are desperately in need of help to keep the program going.

What is Campaign 300?
The Nicodemus Wilderness Project needs a Director of Programs. The Director of Programs position will be funded in perpetuity by establishing a permanent endowment of $300,000 and supplementing additional program costs with grants. This will allow us to work towards accomplishing our mission in a full-time capacity without having to devote excessive time to fundraising.

What are the goals of Campaign 300?

  1. Protect our environment. Our programs result in a cleaner and safer environment for wildlife and for the health and enjoyment of future generations. Campaign 300 will allow us to greatly expand our programs by recruiting youth volunteers who conduct environmental stewardship projects around the world.

  2. Promote youth education. Kids and teens are eager to help save the environment but they need mentorship, supplies, and support that only your donation can provide. Campaign 300 will allow us to expand our educational scholarship program and increase the visibililty of the already popular Apprentice Ecologist Awards.

  3. Build future conservation leaders. Our programs build future conservation leaders because we realize that young volunteers become leaders when they are given the freedom to identify and solve environmental problems on their own. Campaign 300 will provide the support needed to nurture youth volunteers from their first Apprentice Ecologist project to a lifetime of service to our environment.

How much has Campaign 300 received so far?
Gifts from the public total $40,323 (as of December 31, 2010). We are 13.4% of the way there! Your gift will help us reach 100%!

How can I help?
Your contribution (big or small) to the Nicodemus Wilderness Project will help us to reach our common goal of bringing quality environmental education and stewardship activities to kids and teens around the world. Receive a large NWP tote bag (made in the USA with 100% certified organic cotton) for your donation of $50 or more. If you donate $1,000 or more, you will be permanently recognized as a Conservation Leader on our website and in our publications. By making a bequest or other planned gift to NWP, you can help ensure that wildlife and our environment will be protected for future generations.
