The 2017 Annual Year-End -- "Five For CoCoRaHS" Fund Raising Campaign
Please consider making a donation today!
At the end of each year we hold our annual on-line fundraiser providing the opportunity to make a donation to the CoCoRaHS Network. This year our goal is 5,000 individual donations totaling $150,000 (last year we raised $112,824). We have some challenges out there this year . . . . if we reach the $120K mark, we have a donor who has already agreed to donate an additional $5,000 to the program. Another in Texas has offered to donate $800 if receive four- $200 donations from the Lone Star state during the month of December. There are other "matching/level challenges" evolving this year and these will be presented throughout the campaign. If you are interested in providing a challenge to other donors, please let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We appreciate your help immensely by taking your daily observations. There is no obligation to give, although many CoCoRaHS volunteers have also offered to help financially and this makes a big difference. 100% of these gifts go directly to support CoCoRaHS activities and supplement any outside funding that we receive. Donations help support web development, training, outreach, supplies and much, much more. Your giving will go a long way to help sustain the network throughout 2018 and provide opportunities for the future. We greatly thank you!
Our traditional "Five For CoCoRaHS" campaigns have asked folks to give just five dollars. Please consider giving $5.00 to this campaign. Although the amount may seem small, the donations add up quickly and have great impact.
For those who wish to give above and beyond this amount we have some nice "thank you" gifts awaiting you:
-- At the $50 level and above you have the option to receive an official CoCoRaHS short sleeve "Precip" t-shirt* as a thank you gift. This year we offer our "Hydrometeor" t-shirt which features five important precipitation symbols. Hydrometeor . . . loosely translated - "kind of a wet meteor from the sky".

-- At the $100 level and above you have the option to receive an official CoCoRaHS long sleeve "Precip" t-shirt* as a thank you gift.
