What are FRIENDS for?

Long sustained on a modest budget by dedicated staff and volunteers, the Sierra Nevada Field Campus needs our help. Friends of the S N F C — an all- volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization — was created in 2017 to raise funds to upgrade SNFC facilities, boost student attendance, and coordinate volunteer efforts. Can you join us? We are already reaping the rewards! Because of the support of Friends, the dining hall bathrooms have been renovated, heat was installed in the dining room, the SNFC registration process was streamlined and opened early resulting in a spike in enrollments.  In Summer 2019,  a beautiful new roof was installed on the staff cabin along with many more desperately needed sometimes invisible repairs.

The Board of Friends is a working board.  We have partnered with the University to fundraise, advise and provide support for some administrative functions of SNFC.  Our website is a tool for donating.  We update you with “news” in our year end appeal for donations, or when you are on site for classes.

Yes! Please count me in as a FRIEND of the Sierra Nevada Field Campus!

Your contribution will immediately help us continue to upgrade facilities, work towards installation of a wider bridge and abutments, and support the grand vision of a new classroom, lab & dormitory building. We welcome donations of any amount.

Please give generously! All donations will be gratefully acknowledged in writing.
