The Roosa Fund Grant

We are thrilled to announce that ConserFest has been awarded a grant from The Roosa Fund to support the Scholarship Program! The mission of the Roosa Fund is to respond to the needs of its home community, Block Island, Rhode Island, by providing assistance to vulnerable people in our midst – including the poor, the young, and the elderly; and by improving Block Island’s vulnerable natural environment. Their award to ConserFest will protect our ability to offer the Scholarship to exceptional Block Island School students persuing environmental education in the future. Thank you to The Roosa Fund for their generous support! 

TriTeam GoFundMe 2017

Please donate through this fundraiser in order to support the ConserFest triathlon team which will compete in the Summer 2017 Block Island Triathlon to spread awareness of the organization and its cause. With your support, we can further ConserFest's objective of sensible treatment of the land through both our team's performance and the selling of merchandise during the race.

If you would like to join the team, please post the hashtag #CFTRITEAM in the GoFundMe's comments section.  Alternatively, if you would like to sponsor/support a ConserFest Tri-Team member, please post their name in the comments section along with your donation.
