Christine Snyder Tree Education Fund – For Urban Forestry Education
A special fund has been established in memory of Outdoor Circle arborist Christine Snyder (August 12, 1969 – September 11, 2001). In recognition of Christine’s passion and love for trees, the Christine Snyder Tree Education Fund continues Christine’s goal to teach Hawai‘i residents about the importance of trees in our lives as well as to educate them about proper tree care.
Tree Planting & Preservation Fund – For Planting & Preserving Trees
Give a gift that keeps on giving…trees! This year, remember a special someone with a unique gift (that’s fully tax deductible) and at the same time makes a contribution to Hawai‘i’s environment. All donations made for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, memorials and other occasions are directed to The Outdoor Circle’s Tree Planting & Preservation Fund. The Tree Fund is used solely for the purpose of planting, protecting and preserving our urban forest.
Norma Michaels and Irma J. Cunha Fund for Communications – For Internal & External Communications
Norma Michaels and Irma J. Cunha were passionate about two things. One was maintaining the beauty of our state and the other was communication. Donations to the Norma Michaels and Irma J. Cunha Fund for Communications are solely dedicated to strengthening our communications which in turn allows us to continue our vital work in the community.
Legal Defense Fund – To uphold the laws protecting our environment
Because the fight to keep Hawaii clean, green, and beautiful does not stop when a good policy is passed, it is critical that TOC be able and ready to uphold our hard-won victories through sometimes long, complex legal battles. This fund is one mechanism for doing that. Consider it the insurance policy on the promise to keep Hawaii clean, green, and beautiful for generations to come. Donations to this fund will be used for legal fees and other expenses related to court cases undertaken by The Outdoor Circle.
Inter-Island Travel Fund – Travel for Organization Representatives
This fund is to be used for travel by branch representatives and members of the board and committees of The Outdoor Circle to attend meetings and trainings relating to the work of The Outdoor Circle and its branches.
