Mendocino Adventure Ropes Course (MARC)
has been under the auspices of Leggett Valley Unified School District, a preschool-12 facility, since inception in 1995. This partnership has allowed MARC a fiscal safety net. In the current education funding crisis, it is untenable for LVUSD to continue that aspect of the relationship.

MARC has also had the underwriting of the Mendocino County Office of Education (MCOE) to facilitate access to MARC by students attending its county schools. In the current fiscal climate, not only is it more difficult for student groups to raise their share of fees, transportation costs and the miscellaneous costs of field trips, but the MCOE has needed to suspend the program.

The Community Fund of Mendocino County generously matched the MCOE monies for FY 2008-09.

An annual fundraising campaign of $10,000. will allow continuation of participation in MARC programs by student and community groups in need of supplemental funding and/ or other basic needs such as inspection or insurance fees, and maintainence and staffing costs. In addition, access to underwriting will be open region-wide.

We are looking to attract wider application of the course in response to community input as well as be assured of keeping a full, well-trained staff.

Thank you for considering our appeal and passing it on to anyone you think might be interested and/or in a position to respond.


Suggestions concerning this campaign are welcome!
