HELP. Friends of RGV Reef needs help raising funds. We have a couple of different tasks that need different kinds of folks.
The first is to pursue the multitude of foundation grants out there, now that we have audited financial statements.
The second is to manage the funds request’s to the City of South Padre Island through its Economic Development Corporation and the Convention Center and Visitors Bureau. In this instance somebody that knows their way around bureaucracies or is familiar with the city of South Padre Island will have a leg up in the process.
We’re looking for people like us: persistent and smart enough to get the job done, and stupid enough to volunteer 🙂 We have a groundbreaking Reef, the first industrial scale nursery in the Gulf, The first reef intentionally bill with graduated stepping stones of patchy habitat, and the largest Reef off the Texas coast. But it all grinds to a halt if we can’t raise the money to place the material. Message us if you’d like to help. Thank you very much, Friends of RGV Reef.
