Monthly donations allow CURE to maintain momentum in our programs and advocacy work, plan for those critical issues that arise and need immediate action, and budget more effectively to make sure we can accomplish all of these things successfully. It also gives you the advantage of knowing that your membership is always current, and that we do not need to bother you with renewal mailings and telephone solicitations. With your support, know that CURE is working on your behalf to protect our water, promote clean energy and provide climate change solutions.
