An Outpouring of Support -- Collins Family Match Met!
Updates on the Save Olsen Barn Campaign
You did it!  From May 24 to July 11, 131 individuals donated to the Save Olsen Barn campaign! From $25 to $10,000, every donation added up to help us make our matching gift from the generous Collins Family. Within that time frame, you helped FRLT raise over $120,000. Thank you everyone who contributed during the match (or anytime)!

We have come such a long way since we first announced this campaign back in April. T o date we have raised a total of $639,255 ($239,255 in individual donations and $400,000 through Prop 50 river parkway funding). Read more about our financial progress here.


Our next goal? By September 26, 2015 we need to raise an additional $158,745 to purchase the property and conserve the Olsen Barn and meadow.
