Wolf-Moose Project Fund Raising - Special Opportunity

Post by Midwest Ed » Fri Feb 07, 2014 10:16 am

This morning I recieved this email from Leah Vucetich.

Dear Friends,

A generous donor has pledged to contribute $60,000 in 2014 if we are able to raise an additional $60,000 from private, non-governmental sources in 2014. This donor has also pledged to contribute $60,000 in 2015 if we are able to raise another $60,000 from private, non-governmental sources in 2015.

This is a chance to double your impact!
Your contribution will provide critical support for Isle Royale wolf-moose research.

It's easy to contribute online by clicking here!

Thank you,

John & Leah Vucetich

So I have an idea. And would this be cheating by the way? Someone post a $60,000 donation. Collect this guys $60,000 matched donation. Give back "someones" $60,000 donation. Used that matched $60,000 donation from the first year towards the following year and collect on another $60,000 dollar matched donation. Do you think the generous donor would have a problem with this? I mean he seems like a nice guy, I'm sure he wouldn't mind. Right?
