Dear ANPR family,
I hope you are all staying safe and doing well. As spring is upon us, that means it is time for our spring fundraising campaign which begins today and will run through May 31, 2021. It has been a long and challenging year. As national park rangers and staff continue to give their best to carry out the National Park Service mission every day, ANPR aims to continue to provide professional enrichment and support to our dedicated rangers. We need your help!
A gift of ANY size will help ANPR immensely in 2021. Here’s some of what your donation will accomplish:
- ANPR’s everyday operating expenses: Have you noticed the wonderful improvements to our website? Do you enjoy receiving and reading your print version of Ranger magazine? Would you like to see some unique training opportunities offered at Rendezvous? A gift to our general operations is the greatest way to support ANPR in 2021.
- Collecting and preserving the stories of our NPS rangers and staff: The Rick Gale Memorial Fund provides necessary funding to do just that. We plan to resume this important project at our Rendezvous in Jacksonville this fall.
- Assisting families of Latin American rangers who have died from Covid-19 and providing scholarships for U.S. and Latin American rangers to attend the World Ranger Congress. You can do this by donating to the Rick Smith Honorary International Fund.
