Giving Tuesday

Posted on Dec 2, 2014

Dear Friends of RTPI,

As we get set to kick off this year’s Peterson Fund drive, we would like to invite you to make your donation now, as part of the Giving Tuesday national day of giving.

Giving Tuesday


Your Giving Tuesday gift provides vital support for RTPI’s financial stability and allows us to continue developing and implementing our Nature Art, Conservation and Education programs. In 2014, your contributions helped Piping Plovers fledge record numbers of young on Connecticut beaches, helped children of all ages learn about nature in their own backyards, helped improve our understanding of the winter habitat needs of our migratory song birds in Costa Rica and Panama, helped many visitors to RTPI experience the beautiful and meaningful art of Roger Tory Peterson, and did so much more…

We are very proud of all we have accomplished together and feel privileged to have you as our friend and supporter. I hope that you share this pride and savor the significance and excitement of these achievements as you start to think about how these projects may grow in 2015!

RTPI manages to leverage even modest donations into great results through close collaboration with our conservation and education partners, but we need your continued support to sustain these projects over the long term. Please consider giving early to let us know that you support our important work of fostering understanding, appreciation and protection of the natural world. You can give us the critical support needed now to prepare for an even bigger and more successful year ahead.

Thank you for your early and generous contribution!


With best regards,
Twan Leenders, President
Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History
