Two Easy ways to give....that are so EASY!
The Friends of Tijeras Pueblo are now registered with iGive
This is an easy way to help us earn needed dollars while you are shopping ONLINE.
We are planning to use these funds raised specifically for completing the learning stations
in the Interpretive Center and to complete the finishing touches on the new trail signs.
How you can help:
1. Go to www.iGive.com and search for Friends of Tijeras Pueblo in the "cause section.
2. Select Friends of Tijeras Pueblo as YOUR cause.
3. Each time you shop on-line, at any place your normally purchase items (Amazon, airlines and lots of other
sites) we will receive a small donation from them--at no cost to you.
5. Each time you shop at your favorite vendor, you will be supporting FOTP at the same time.
6. iGive sends us a check each time they have collected $25 in "shopping donations."
