Here's the Happenings at GoHawkeye!
Happy Holidays and Howdy! These are exciting times at the GoHawkeye Foundation. We're moving forward as a newly formed non-profit organization on many fronts.
The GoHawkeye Great Outdoor Adaptive Adventure Contest
In August, GoHawkeye selected the contest winner Danielle Watson and awarded her a custom off road hand cycle built by ReActive Adaptations. We are now in preproduction of the film adapted from her story titled, "Falling Into Place."
Volunteer Opportunities on "Falling Into Place" Crew
If you are interested in helping with this film production and have four days to spend in Moab, during May, we are searching for VOLUNTEERS.
Fundraising Campaigns for 2015 to Fund the GoHawkeye Mission
STAY TUNED: Special Slopeside GoHawkeye Event Coming Soon!
The GoHawkeye Foundation is in the planning stages for a special event at the base of Telluride Ski
Resort just after the holidays. This event is designed to update our supporters on our activities and plans in a fun slopeside environment. Keep an eye out for future communications about this. We hope to see you at this event.
Thank You, Team GoHawkeye!
For all the GoHawkeye assistance, many of you have provided over the years...we really can't say it enough - so we'll say it again here. Thank you. We have the best group of supporters on the GoHawkeye team. It's because of you that we have been so successful in meeting our mission over the years.
Anonymous $2500 Donation to GoHawkeye Foundation
While we've just become a certified non-profit, it didn't take long for a big donation to come in. We just received $2500 to help us with our programs. If you would like to support the GoHawkeye Foundation and see a tax deduction for 2014, there is still a couple of weeks to DONATE. We're looking to ramp up our efforts this coming year 2015 - that means we have a bigger budget, and more fundraising needs to meet to be able to achieve our goals. Our fundraising target for 2015 is $20,000. This funding level will help us pay for the non-donated portion of The GoHawkeye Great Outdoor Adaptive Adventure Contest custom bike, the film production costs and other planned financial aid programs in 2015. Remember donations made before the end of the year have tax benefits for 2014 tax return filings.
