Yesterday we signed papers with Earthcare International based here in Santa Fe for them to act as our fiscal sponsor for us to go after grant monies in New Mexico. We need a 501c3 New Mexico non-profit organization to act as a conduit for the money we raise to do our Creative-Native Project in New Mexico. To read more about Earthcare go to http://www.earthcare.org
In their words:
Earth Care’s websites offer resources for sustainable living and educating for youth, teachers, and community members at large, including essays by leading writers and experts published in past and current issues of the Sustainable Santa Fe Guide, educational guides and materials, and inspiring stories of youth, schools, communities and organizations across New Mexico and the world that are engaged in this vital work.
We appreciate their willingness to work with us and feel that their mission is a good fit with ours while being different enough to make us compatible for our New Mexico project. There is much more about the variety of projects Earthcare is involved in on their website and they also publish Sustainable Santa Fe which those of you who live in Santa Fe will have seen all over town. It contains extensive information on all aspects of sustainability around New Mexico and especially Santa Fe.
