A non-event fundraiser is a program that follows the same steps as an actual fundraising event (Gala, Auction, etc) except there is no actual live event. The concept is that instead of spending money on attending an event (ticket for dinner, formal dress, baby sitter, and gas) the participant donates the savings to the organization. This event will serve as the Friends of Maryland State Parks annual fundraising program.
There are three ways you can show your support for Maryland State Parks:
The Friends of Maryland State Parks is conducting an Earth Day Non-Event to provide support for Maryland State Parks. We are looking for friends and supporters of the Friends’ mission and vision. We are an all volunteer organization!
Vision: Our Vision is to be the primary catalyst across the state in raising the awareness and appreciation of the “quality of life” benefits associated with the protection, preservation, improvement, and expansion of our Maryland State Parks for current and future generations.
Mission: We will accomplish this Vision by developing a constituency of citizens and elected representatives and officials who believe in the advocacy and support of our Maryland State Parks.
