Dear friends,

The Coal River Group needs your support.  We are preparing for our 12th anniversary in 2016. The work we have accomplished during our first twelve years has had a major impact on the rivers we love, but much more needs to be done.

The CRG has built a strong and effective citizen-based organization that requires much work to maintain and continue to grow. The original volunteers devoted their time and energy willingly, but the time has come to attempt to hire a full-time staff person to help carry on the river work in the future.

This year, we ask that you consider a contribution to the CRG's fundraising campaign to help raise $25,000 for 2016. These funds will help our all-volunteer organization cover administrative costs  in addition to keeping our nonprofit organization and rental business in full running order.

While $25,000 is a lot of money, we believe it is necessary to take our organization to the next level. For the first time, the CRG has a unique opportunity through secured grants to help cover some administrative costs for 2016. But as a citizen-based organization, we need your support to meet this ambitious goal.

So please include the Coal River Group in your charitable giving this year. Your tax-deductible donation makes our work possible and helps "bring life back to the Coal Rivers."
