Laguna Foundation
Board of Directors Pledge $100,000 Matching Grant

Raini Sugg, Board President of the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation announced that she and every member of the Laguna Board are combining efforts to contribute a $100,000 matching grant. They will match all gifts made by December 31, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000. This means a donation of $100 will result in a gift of $200. Even better, they will match all gifts of $1,000 or more on a two-to-one basis. That means a gift of $1,000 results in $3,000 for the Laguna de Santa Rosa!

Raini and the Board are making this special gift because they believe deeply that the health of the Laguna affects everyone. “Protecting and restoring the Laguna cannot wait,” says Raini. "It is so important for our staff to be proactive but the work depends on a sustainable funding source of private capital. Private philanthropy is the key.”
