25th Anniversary Fund Drive Concludes

Development Director Madeline Cantwell writes:

Thanks to everyone who donated to Orion‘s 25th Anniversary Fund!

In celebration of Orion‘s twenty-fifth birthday, last April the Kendeda Fund for Sustainability offered a $50,000 challenge grant if we met our fundraising goal for the second half of 2007.

The goal — an ambitious one for Orion — was set at $200,000, and when the 2007 books closed, $222,294 had been raised! With the Kendeda challenge, that makes for a grand total of $272,294, more than $20,000 over our goal.

Thanks again to those who gave to this campaign — your contributions will be used to fund the ideas, images, and stories of change you find
in Orion. As you know, Orion accepts no advertising, and so every single gift received makes for a better magazine.

P.S. Don’t be too sad if you didn’t give this time around; the Orion online donation page is open for business 24/7! Questions? email development@orionsociety.org.
