The Rochester Regional Group of the Sierra Club

About the Rochester Regional Group

Mission:

The purpose of this Group is to foster (within its territorial limits) the purposes of the Sierra Club, as stated in its bylaws:

To explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth; to practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and resources; to educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment; and to use all lawful means to carry out these objectives.

Funding

We are funded in part by a portion of member dues which the national Sierra Club returns to us. However, most of our income is raised through our own fund-raising efforts, primarily the sale of Sierra Club calendars. Our greatest expense is printing and mailing our bimonthly newsletter.

The Eco-Logue keeps our members informed of group activities as well as progress in our conservation efforts.

Make a Tax Deductible Contribution: If you want to make a tax-deductible contribution you can do it in a way that will directly benefit the Rochester Regional Group of the Sierra Club.  Cash, stocks, or bonds can be given to the Sierra Club Foundations marked "For use by the Rochester Regional Group."  (Include #FC1959 on your check)  For Stocks or bonds contact: sierra_rochester@yahoo.com  

TAX DEDUCTIBLE GIFTS: THE LESSER KNOWN FACTS

Your Rochester Regional Group is financially supported by the National Club with a portion of membership fees and by the donations that you send directly to us.  Because dollars are scarce everywhere, we expect to receive significantly less funding this year from National than in many years. Gifts to the “Sierra Club Foundation, Rochester Regional Group”  are tax deductible and can be used to help us fund newsletter publications and  educational programs. You will receive Foundation acknowledgement for the IRS.

 

Gifts made out simply to “Sierra Club, Rochester Regional Group” are not tax-deductible, but we can use them without restriction— that is, also for legislative advocacy. Please know that your donations, regardless of which type, enable us to make a difference for the environment right here at home.  Your support is much appreciated.
