Mendocino Adventure Ropes Course (MARC) has been under the auspices of Leggett Valley Unified School District (LVUSD), a preschool-12 facility, since inception in 1995. This partnership has allowed MARC a fiscal safety net and is ongoing. LVUSD welcomes help to continue this aspect of the relationship.

In the early years MARC also had the underwriting of the Mendocino County Office of Education (MCOE) to facilitate access to MARC by student groups attending its county schools, but discontinued the program during the 2008 fiscal crisis.  Education funding is currently allowing the MCOE to again consider being supportive as able. It remains that in the current fiscal climate, it is more difficult for student groups to raise their share of fees, transportation costs and the miscellaneous costs of field trips.

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 maintenance 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.
Let us know if there are programming changes that would better meet your needs.

Thank you for considering our appeal and passing it on to anyone you think might be interested and/or in a position to respond.   Join us in supporting MARC either by training to facilitate or helping with promotion, networking, fund-raising and of course bringing your group(s)!
Suggestions concerning this campaign are welcome!
