The Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment announced their continued support of the Wild Equity Institute and our campaign to restore Sharp Park on December 14, 2010.

“We are grateful for the Rose Foundation’s generous grant,” said Brent Plater, executive director of the Wild Equity Institute. We’re proud of the diverse coalition we’ve built to restore Sharp Park, and the Rose Foundation’s support will help us continue this important work.”

The Wild Equity Institute is working to transform Sharp Park from a money losing, endangered species killing golf course into a public park that naturally adapts to sea level rise, protects coastal communities from flooding events, recovers endangered species, and provides recreational access everyone can enjoy.

A Restoration Vision for Sharp Park.

The Wild Equity Institute received a $3,000 grant from the Rose Foundation’s Northern California Environmental Grassroots Fund. The purpose of this fund is to support small groups tackling difficult environmental problems. The funding will support the Wild Equity Institute’s education, advocacy, and litigation, all aimed at restoring Sharp Park.

An anonymous Wild Equity Institute donor has pledged up to $5,000 to our work: if we can get our community to match it!

Here’s the deal: For every dollar we raise during our end-of-year fundraising drive, our donor will match it — up to $5,000!

This means you can double your impact by donating today: for every dollar you contribute, another dollar will be donated to our work.

We’ve already raised $2,000: but we need another $3,000 by the end of the year or we’ll be leaving money on the table. That’s money that can help us restore Sharp Park, defend San Francisco Bay from climate change, and build a healthy and sustainable global community for all.

If you haven’t yet joined our movement, there couldn’t be a better time. Donate now and double your impact.

And remember, you can always go to our donate page to become a monthly donor or discover other ways you can contribute to our campaigns. Just click on wildequity.org/donate.

Here at the Wild Equity Institute we spend most of our time concerned about the fate of our communities and the fate of our Earth—and we wield every fiber of our collective being to create a healthier and more sustainable global community for all. But the holiday season is the perfect time to reflect on the beauty and joy we still find in the world. We have much to be thankful for: the successful launch of our organization, the rediscovery of the Franciscan manzanita, and we’re even thankful for our strange bedfellows!


Franciscan manzanita, Arctostaphylos franciscana

We foresee great opportunities in 2010, but we also face great challenges: from climate change to callous public officials to a body politic so distressed that it’s difficult to focus public attention on our obligation to others. This holiday season, consider how you can partner with the Wild Equity Institute to overcome these obstacles and create a world you’ll be proud to leave behind for the next generation to enjoy. Contact us if you’d like to loan us your skills and help us accomplish our mission, and please consider supporting our work by making a contribution today on-line or through the mail. We can’t do it without you: thank you so much for your continued support!
