Friend-raiser

Our fundraising consultant said “Do a friend-raiser!” “What is that?” we asked – and you may be asking the same question. Well, Friend-raisers are an opportunity to learn about, and explore giving to, a nonprofit.

We will be holding Kôr’s first friend-raiser at one of our favorite restaurants, Cafe Sintra. The event will be the first Friday of October from 4:30-6:30 and will feature a wine tasting, tapas, live music and some great Kôr-style fun. Click here for more information. If you are already a supporter of Kôr and want to share the love with your friends, email us at info@korlandtrust.org for tickets.

We have $5500 left to raise and the Zero Energy Project has offered to match all donations made toward this funding gap. If the environment, affordable housing, and energy efficiency is something you can get behind, donate today! See our AerroBarrier request for support for more information on this amazing product.

Thank you to those who have donated to this worthy project:
