We do not inherit the
earth from our ancestors,
we borrow it from
our children.

Unrestricted Donations

General Operating Support

Unrestricted gifts to Friends of Saguaro National Park can be utilized to help fund basic operating expenses for the organization -- staff, rent, printing, phones, office supplies, etc.

These funds are necessary for us to be able to keep the doors open and the lights on . . . but often, these monies can be the most difficult for a nonprofit to raise. Friends of Saguaro keeps our general operating costs low; for the past ten years, our overhead and fundraising costs have been limited to only approximately 15% of our total expenses.
