Fundraising Goals

Fundraising Ideas

Many of us want to change the world, and there are countless organizations working to solve a variety of problems. But, with limited time and money to spare, it can be discouraging to realize that often our contributions are negligible. There is, however, a way to make a small donation go a long way by donating to the Friends of Ishmael Society. Spending time and money promoting Ishmael gives you the most bang for your buck.

Although activist organizations are needed, we will be fighting an uphill battle until people change their MINDS. We believe that Daniel Quinn's work is a proven and powerfully effective tool to do just that. By changing minds, we do something even more important than activism...create more activists!

The Ishmael in Action Section is filled with stories of what can happen when people's minds are changed. For instance, Ray Anderson changed his multibillion dollar company, Interface, Inc., to make it environmentally friendly and sustainable after reading Ishmael. By working to make Ishmael a household name, we will continue the important process of changing minds, a process that actually CAN make a difference in the world. Please help us grow and achieve this goal by donating generously.

You can make a donation in either of two ways.



Become a Friends of Ishmael Society Sustainer

To become an ongoing active supporter, please join our Sustainer Program. Simply pledge a monthly contribution to support the Friends of Ishmael Society all year long. Standard monthy pledges are $5, $10, $25, and $50, although any pledge is appreciated. There is no obligation or commitment- you can change or cancel your pledge at any time.

All money is used ONLY as outlined in goals. In addition to personal satisfaction, all donors and sustainers who wish to be recognized will have their names posted on our Donors and Sustainers Page in recognition of their contribution. We will also be glad to post an event or person in whose honor or memory the donation is being given.
