“There is support among the primary local agencies and coalitions in the “Thompson Watershed” to move forward with the development of a 501(c)(3) organization to provide fundraising, planning, and implementation of watershed and river restoration activities in the Big Thompson, Little Thompson, North Fork (including its tributaries), Fish Creek, Fall River, and Buckhorn Creek drainages.
We cannot get into all of the details right now, but I am sending you this message to keep you apprised of progress. Attached is a list of the representatives who will be at the initial meeting and who are now part of the non-profit development working group, a group that will work collaboratively to lay out the vision/mission/goals/values of the non-profit, as well as governance model and organizational structure.
Once we have a more firm outline of the organizations mission, goals, etc. we will invite a larger stakeholder group to the table to facilitate a meaningful input process to finalize the organizational structure, mission, etc. We’ll discuss this more at our first meeting.” – John Giordanengo
