Your contribution of any size will support our startup and ongoing expenses, and accelerate our impact. Our goal is to raise $270,000 to cover a full lease payment.
REDCO is a non-profit entity and your donation is tax deductible.
We are hiring for a Range Assistant, who will be a full time employee with benefits and housing provided. See the job announcement above. We will also seek part-time seasonal help, so get in touch to be added to our list.
As a Lakota-based venture, it is also important that our management plan is grounded in cultural wisdom, which is why we invite Lakota knowledge keepers to join our Cultural Advisory Group.
Finally, we welcome volunteers, artists, technical assistance partners, and others who wish to contribute to the project.
You can sponsor a specific expense of the project such as:
Bison transportation - $20,000
Water tank to protect against fires - $5,000
ATV - $15,000
Pickup truck - $25,000
Well fixes - $1,000 each
Skid steer - $30,000
Trailer - $20,000
Tractor - $70,000
Handling Facility - $150,000
