Our first challenge is to raise $60,000 by the end of July to cover attorneys' fees, expert witnesses, communications, and materials for the July 28 public hearing. The first $25,000 raised, representing gifts from nearly 90 community members, was matched dollar for dollar by a generous gift from Fritz and Renee McPhail.
All contributions go to the Crab Creek Preservation Society, a new nonprofit approved by the IRS and registered with the NC Secretary of State. Its purpose is "to protect rural character, natural resources, and cultural heritage in and around the Crab Creek community."
A secure system provided by Qgiv is handling online donations. Impact Accounting Partners will handle financial reporting. Neighbors Fritz and Renee McPhail sit on the board, along with neighbor Randy Doss. Other board members can be appointed. This organization will continue its work as long as community members wish to support it financially.
Note: raising $60,000 is our first challenge. After July 28, we may need additional funds for legal appeals and to improve county policy so we don't need to keep fighting unwanted development. Thank you for any amount you can contribute, however large or small. And thank you for encouraging friends and neighbors to give!
