Susan Lordi Marker $18,000 Challenge for MPF Outreach & Education

MPF member Susan Lordi Marker invites all prairie supporters to make a gift to support MPF’s outreach and education work, and will match all gifts to a total of $18,000 by the end of 2019.


MPF carries out a robust outreach and education program—offering hikes, workshops, presentations, and other outreach activities—to help introduce more people to the importance of prairie and benefits of native plants. MPF’s Missouri Prairie Journal, in continuous publication since 1979, fills an important role in the conservation community by sharing results of prairie research and the ecological importance of prairie and native plants. Gifts in 2019 to support MPF’s outreach & education endeavors will help fund MPF’s outreach, research, education, and Grow Native! programming. Thanks to a generous match gift from Susan Lordi Marker, all gifts of any amount will be matched to a total of $18,000.

You can make a donation of any amount online now, or, you can send a check to: Missouri Prairie Foundation, c/o Bank of Missouri, P.O. Box 856, Mexico, MO 65265-0856, and write “outreach & education” on the memo line.
