People for Puget Sound is now defunct.
Sad but true.
Expenses exceeded contributions.
New CEO not able to keep the organization afloat.
Went down with all hands on board.

My experience with People for Puget Sound has been excellent. They gave me the chance to learn how to be politically active for causes that I care about. The individuals involved with the organization are committed to the mission of protecting Puget Sound and work hard to accomplish their goals.

I too am a board member and have been a member since quite a few years before I joined the board. People For Puget Sound has one of the most well respected environmental leaders in Washington n Kathy Fletcher, the staff she has hired is excellent, and the work they actually get done on behalf of protecting and restoring the Sound is really amazing. I consider my membership dollars to be well spent, and everyone, including the board, is an activist on behalf of the Sound.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

We were key in getting the Rescue tug at Neah Bay on the Strait of Juan de Fuca to help protect the Strait and Sound from a major oil spill.

Creative thinking about how to reach people.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Highly energetic and fun to work with!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

The goal of restoring and protecting the Sound is a huge piece of work. With 10 million bucks this organization could fund hundreds of useful projects, both restoration and educational, to help drive their mission. It would affect vastly more people.

OK, as a board member, I'm admittedly biased. But there are some great reasons I support PFPS, and I hope others will join their voices to our efforts to save - and restore - Puget Sound. First: the marine life in Puget Sound is unbelievable. As a boater, just seeing the Orcas, porposises, jellyfish - and everything else I can't name, is pretty darn fantastic. I can't imagine the Sound without it's marine life. Second: everywhere you go, whether it's a waterfront home, a park, a river - you get this awareness that we're all part of one ecosystem - everything somehow winds up connecting with the Sound. Advocating for the Sound is a big job - and we all benefit from an independent voice, like PFPS, providing good solid policy and science. Third: My buck makes a difference. Right here in the Sound, my donations impact how our region manages the Sound. I can't support every great environmental cause (though I sure would like to), so I have to select the organizations that I want to be sure are on the radar screen with elected officials, land managers/developers and everyone who uses our marine resources. I could go on and on - but thanks for reading this far. Rest assured the Board, staff and everyone involved are committed to keeping PFPS a leader in our region's envionrmental movement!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The spirit and drive of the volunteers, staff and constituents of PFPS make the real difference. These folks want to do the right thing and protect Puget Sound.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make a much bigger impact in all the shorelines and marine areas that makeup Puget Sound. This is such a diverse, and fragile ecosystem, that any and all steps in the right direction will go along way in protecting this resource for future generations.
