Annual Appeal

Dear friends of Crown Point,

Crown Point Ecology Center achieved an important milestone this year completing thirty years of organic growing, educating children, and modeling behaviors of ecology- protecting and preserving Earth. Messaging about global
warming and healthy eating were not as pervasive thirty years ago as they are today. Yet, the Dominican Sisters who founded Crown Point in 1989 were determined to create such a place promoting the principles of spirituality, social
justice and environmental protection . That solid platform continues to serve us well today. Specific highlights of the 2019 season are listed on an attachment to this letter.

The success of Crown Point over these thirty years is directly attributed to friends like you who have appreciated the importance of our work. One of the most significant ways you can show your support at this time is by making a
year-end gift to Crown Point's Annual Appeal campaign. Our Annual Fund Goal this year is $18,000, so we need your support in achieving this target to enable continuing success in the new year.

Your gift in any amount will be greatly appreciated . We will be happy to receive your check or credit card gift, or to facilitate your Annual Fund pledge through monthly or quarterly payments. A response envelope is enclosed for your

Please stop by and introduce yourself so I can share some of our plans for 2020. I would also look forward to speaking with you at 330 -668 -8992 or I can be reached at Thank you in advance for inclusion
of Crown Point in your year-end philanthropy. With your support we can ensure many more years renewing earth and spirit at Crown Point.
