And thank you to all of our members for also believing in a cleaner and healthier Pacific Ocean.
Your passion, your dedication and your energy is the driving force of our growth.
We have been around since 1997 and since then we have grown a lot. PBC has always been an all-volunteer based organization leading beach cleanups, habitat restorations, free lecture series, Earth Day and EcoFest events and organizing school assemblies for the schools and the coastal community. Over the years, we have been educating more and more volunteers and we have been getting more requests from schools, organizations and companies to help educate their groups. Unfortunately, this is not something that can be accomplished with only our dedicated volunteers. While our volunteers are amazing and give us all their free time, to keep educating at this scale and to keep expanding our outreach, we need to build a team of educators and contractors, and maybe have an office. We have so many ideas for new projects and programs expanding from Daly City thru Half Moon Bay and beyond, projects that will help us preserve our ocean — and we need your support to make that happen.
Your Membership Dollars at Work
The larger portion of our expenses are made to fund our education and fields programs needed to give our volunteers a great and rewarding experience. Earth Day of Action and the EcoFest in addition to the activities that we organize leading to PBC’s biggest annual events also take a portion of our budget, this includes, school assemblies, speakers, stage etc… Gloves, buckets, native plants and tools are part of our supply budget. To make sure that we have enough volunteers to help us with our beach cleanups, habitat restoration or come to our free educational communities lectures, we do have to spend some of our dollars on fundraising, marketing and outreach. Finally, insurance, Quickbooks and other related expenses are part of our administration costs.
