We did it!
Thanks to our loyal supporters, we reached our $150,000 goal! Combined with the matching funds from other generous donors, we made our $300,000 Challenge in six weeks. What a great feeling to know that we can count on our friends, even during hard times.
Because of your generosity, we go into 2010 with our major programs—our farmer and youth education, the livestock guarding dogs, and our ongoing biological and reproductive research—funded...for the next few months. As you know, CCF is a small organization, and you are its heart and soul. And, until cheetahs are off the endangered species list, our work will never be completed. It is only due to the fierce determination of our board, staff, and donors that we have achieved this level of success.
2010 will be especially exciting for CCF, as this is our 20th anniversary! Twenty years ago, I sold everything I had and moved to the newly independent Namibia, which had and still has the largest remaining population of cheetah. I wanted to save the wild cheetah, but I had no idea my dream would turn into the organization CCF is today!
To celebrate this milestone year, I and the CCF staff will be sending out regular emails highlighting CCF’s various programs and achievements. I hope you enjoy them and that they give you greater insight into the challenges that we still face.
Sending you cheetah purrs for a wonderful 2010!
With my deepest gratitude and profound thanks,
Dr. Laurie Marker
Founder and Executive Director
