Dear Wolf River Conservancy Partner:

It is always nice to be able to share good news with you, and our latest good news is that, for the remainder of 2016, the Hyde Family Foundations is helping the Conservancy to deliver on its mission by providing an additional incentive for you to show your individual financial support.

Yes, the Hyde Family Foundations will match $1 for $1 your financial gift* through the balance of this year up to the first $75,000 collected.  Any new, additional, or increased gifts from individuals will be doubled - with thanks to our friends at Hyde Family Foundations!

As a Wolf River Conservancy partner, you know very well that adequate funding is required to continue to deliver the numerous high quality programs and projects we provide for our community.

The Hyde Family Foundations is now offering you an added incentive to make your financial gift to WRC now. Giving has never been easier:  you can give online or by mail.

Lastly, you will see in this issue our reluctant farewell to Kimberly Thomas (see additional article). Kimberly has served as our Office Manager since 2009 and is making a departure to join her family’s business. She will be greatly missed!

As always, thank you all for your support for the Wolf River Conservancy.

Keith Cole
Executive Director
