Maybe it's fixed now - I just made a donation that went through with no problems.

Hi Friends, 

I am so sorry for everyone's frustration, and I am so grateful for all of you trying to support FOSC. 

I have a call into East Bay Community Foundation to see if there is any backup plan they can provide. I have received no word today about how they are going to handle prizes given the technical difficulties. 

Between 4 p.m. and 4:09 p.m., nine donations came through to FOSC via the East Bay Gives website, but I know it is timing out for most folks. You can keep trying ( https://eastbaygives.org/npo/friends-of-sausal-creek or https://eastbaygives.org/ ). Or you can always donate to FOSC via PayPal or Network for Good. Links to both are on our usual Donate web page: 


http://www.sausalcreek.org/#!donate-now/ctw8 
Or you can mail a check to the below PO Box :) 

I am still holding out hope that FOSC will win the Environmental Hour prize! 

Thank you. 
Kimra

Dear Friends of Sausal Creek,

I was not planning to send you another East Bay Gives message as I'm sure your email inboxes are overflowing like mine!  But there is important news to share:  The East Bay Community Foundation East Bay Gives staff let us know that the donation site is experiencing technical difficulties.  The donation form on each organization's profile page has been up and down all morning.

Thank you to the 23 donors that have donated $951 to FOSC despite the issues!

We are hopeful that the programmers and site administrators will fix the problems ASAP.  If you want to make a donation and are having trouble with the site and FOSC's donation page, please check back later today … especially during the 4-5 p.m. Environmental Hour!

FOSC profile page: https://eastbaygives.org/npo/friends-of-sausal-creek East Bay Gives home page (just in case): https://eastbaygives.org/ Prize targets: http://www.documents.sausalcreek.org/FOSC_Target_Prize_List_EBG.pdf (Check out that $4,000 Sunset Prize for the donation at exactly 8:01:00 p.m.!!)  

We truly appreciate your support and your patience.
Kimra
