Special Opportunity for next 24 hours only: Extra $500 from John Spady if others can match it

July 25th update:  John Spady has contributed $500 to the NCDD’s summer fund drive — bringing our total so far up to $3635 — and is ready to donate another $500 if other donations can match that amount by noon EST tomorrow (July 26th).  So now’s the time to donate (at www.ncdd.org/funddrive), even if you can only give $25 or $10.

A huge thank you to John Spady for his matching donation!  John has been an active, supportive member of NCDD since we got started, and has been doing innovative work in King County (Seattle area) for years now.  One of his recent projects is the Countywide Community Forums — a dialogue program run through the King County Auditor’s Office that enables hundreds of residents to come together regularly to discuss timely public problems and share citizen-generated recommendations and data with local government officials. We have a great write-up about John’s work at www.ncdd.org/2401.

Our goal for the 3-week fund drive is $10,000, and I would love to see us reach 50% of our goal by noon tomorrow — which is day 7. Every bit is greatly appreciated and is, in effect, doubled until Tuesday at noon!

Check here on the fund drive page throughout the day to see our progress!  We’re also acknowledging our donors and their contributions on that page, and feature some quotes from leaders in our field about why they feel NCDD is worth supporting.
