Posted by Lori Hanemann at Dec 11, 2014 04:00 PM |

year end giving

The end of the year is the most popular time for charitable giving, when people think about giving and when they choose to give tax deductible donations.

We appreciate your support all year and want to make donating to the Northern Center as easy as possible for you during the busy holiday season.

Your donation makes you a member of the Center, and membership means you're part of a large group of people who care deeply about the conservation of wilderness in interior and Arctic Alaska. We have over 1600 members, which includes folks outside of Alaska, because everyone loves the enchanting beauty of the far north. People who have lived here their whole life, people who have had once-in-a-lifetime trips in the arctic, and people who will never make it to Alaska's wilderness can all relate to that desire to protect some of the last truly wild places in the world. 

Thank you for your support and understanding that wilderness is for everyone.

Best wishes for the new year - 2015!
