Special events today – Nov. 27, 2018 include “Giving Day” through Pittsburgh Gives. and with the PayPal-Facebook as Monarch’s fundraiser. Pittsburgh Gives raises our local awareness, and the PayPal-Facebook may provide matching funds.
“I figured she must be important – Pittsburgh named a bridge after her!”* – Please help fund to help more people learn about Rachel Carson and her legacy! Make Rachel Carson’s Homestead the destination deserving of its namesake – a place to learn about her life and environmental ethic. This is where Rachel’s sense of wonder began, where she fetched water from a spring-fed well, and where she found her “Favorite Recreation” in fields and woods near her family home.
Donate November 27, 2018 through Pittsburgh Gives. A minimum of $25 is required there.
We are also participating in a fund-raiser sponsored by PayPal and Facebook – you can find it as Monarch’s fundraiser.
You can also donate any amount on this website by PayPal or mail a check to RCHA, PO Box 46, Springdale, PA 15144.
*This quote about the bridge was from a first-time visitor who knew the name “Rachel Carson” only because of Pittsburgh’s former “Ninth Street Bridge” was renamed. It peaked her curiosity, and she enjoyed the visit. Other visitors arrive with testimonials about how Miss Carson’s books changed their lives. Some come to fill in information about research projects. They all appreciate the authenticity of the humble home. Help get it to a point of financial sustainability so we can move beyond maintenance and “open doors.” Thank you!
