If we can do this, think of what we could do with your $20.00 donation?

Green the Greber Awards

It is essential that the awards continue to grow and flourish.

Green the Greber Awards simply by giving $20.00.

Green is the symbol of growth and greening the earth and is also the colour of a twenty-dollar bill. When you donate $20.00 you will contribute to the growth of the awards.

Your donation will go towards increasing the size of the ongoing awards and so keep on giving year after year.

Donate now, and help achieve this year's goal of ten thousand dollars.

For every $500.00 in donations we receive a leaf will turn green. Help us reach our goal and Green the Greber Award.
