The activities of the Amigos de Bolsa Chica are supported entirely from dues, private donations, grants and fund-raisers. Like any organization or business, the Amigos must meet the costs of staff payroll, utilities, office rent, insurance, educational materials and a myriad of other expenses that are necessary to fulfill our pledge to acquire, preserve and restore the Bolsa Chica, and to educate people about the importance of wetlands. With the opening of the newly restored wetland, public education will become our principal activity. You can help inform and educate the public, young and old, about the value of wetlands by joining the Amigos de Bolsa Chica. All contributions to Amigos de Bolsa Chica are tax-deductible (FIN 33-0752003) as allowed by law under IRS Code Section 501(c)3.
