Donate by midnight tonight

Update: $40,000 matched for Mono Lake!

Thanks to you, and the support of more than 270 other members and supporters, we achieved our goal of raising $30,000 to be matched for Mono Lake. And then, when the match was increased to $40,000, you helped us reach that goal too!

That’s $80,000 going to protect Mono Lake, restore its tributary streams, educate the next generation of decision makers, and support scientific research in the Mono Basin.

If you haven’t had a chance to chip in today, there’s still time! Donate by midnight tonight to help make this a record-setting Giving Tuesday for Mono Lake.

Help set a record this Giving Tuesday with your donation of any size!

Track our progress

All gifts made through November 29 were matched, dollar for dollar, up to $40,000, thanks to the generosity of our longtime member and friend, Joan. Her hope is to inspire people like you to give an extra gift this Giving Tuesday.

Thank you for supporting our work to protect everything from the tufa towers and wide open spaces of the Mono Basin to the nesting California Gull colony on the islands, to restore Rush, Lee Vining, Mill, Parker, and Walker creeks and the fish and wildlife that depend on them, to educate and inspire the next generation of water decision makers, and to support the scientific research that guides all the actions we take for Mono Lake.

This morning Rose and I recorded our annual livestream of sunrise from the shore of Mono Lake, check out the video below in case you missed it!

Thank you for everything you do for Mono Lake—your support is what makes our work possible. We hope you’ll take this opportunity to donate today.
