The Oakland Nature Preserve is extending its Match Challenge in order to reach its goal for a matching grant.
The challenge, which began in August, has now been extended to Nov. 14.
The Match Challenge aims to raise $10,000 for the preserve in order to receive a matching grant of $10,000 for its environmental programs.
Donations will be matched, dollar for dollar, so resident's contributions will have double the impact and will directly help fund ONP's mission and programs next year.
So far, as of Tuesday, Nov. 9, the preserve has raised a little over $9,000.
Those who wish to donate can make checks payable to Oakland Nature Preserve and mail to P.O. Box 841, Oakland, FL 34760. The preserve is asking that the memo line states the donation is for the Challenge Match Grant.
Locals can also visit www.OaklandNaturePreserve.org and click donate to have their gift's matched.
