Our Sustainer Circle helps to sustain and uplift the long-term vision, mission, refurbishment and revitalisation efforts at the Springs. Through ongoing patron contributions, Sustainer Circle members offer a powerfully supportive foundation to buffer and bolster us from the intense ebbs and flows of a (for the time being) still limited revenue-producing season surrounded by months of little to no cashflow (where, usually, the lion’s share of all repairs and revitalization projects must also occur).

More powerfully, our Sustainer Circle enables our year-round work to remain focused on the longer-arc of cultural and ecological restoration, infrastructure upgrades and improvements, a county use/permit update allowing us to create a true hot springs experience, as well as long-term legacy planning to ensure the accessibility and protection of the Springs for generations to come.

How it works: Sustainer Circle members contribute automated monthly donations  –OR–  a single annual donation. While being a part of our esteemed Sustainer Circle is separate from admissions, many of the extras or perks that were formerly a part of our classic memberships (such as weekend evening swim hours, guest passes, cafe discounts, etc.) are now part of our annual thank you to our Sustainer Circle members. This patronage is on an annual basis and membership is auto-renewed each year with 45-day renewal notice. If there are any critical or unexpected shifts which necessitate a change of support mid-year, Sustainer Circle Members may request a change using our a 30-day courtesy Donation Cancellation/Alteration notice form.

Sustainer Circle Policies

Sustainer Circle members are individuals. Multiple people (like a couple) or groupings of people (friends or families) are not grouped together under a single donating member. Said another way, a couple or a whole family could consider themselves connected to a single Sustainer member or a Patron member, by way of using that member’s guest passes for example, but, for our purposes, we only record one individual’s name and donation information.

Sustainer Circle membership does not convey admissions to the Springs during regular hours, though many of the perks that were a part of our former memberships (such as weekend evening swim hours, guest passes, cafe discounts, etc.) are now part of our annual thank you to our Sustainer Circle members.

All Sustainer Circle member donations primarily fund capital improvements and land-based ecological, restoration and infrastructural improvements which specifically build upon our mission and vision and which help to preserve the future legacy of the Springs.

    • Occasionally, these funds may also sustain basic operational costs during lean times if ever needed. In the current chapter of our organizational life, these funds are going directly towards our efforts in rebuilding the pools and reopening again for the summer 2023 season.
    • After reopening for our summer 2023 season, funds will next support us to complete our 50+ year master site design and legacy planning which is required for us to apply for a new use permit, then support our movement through the permitting process itself (estimated to be between 3-7 years).
    • Finally, once we have a new use permit issued, funds will go towards phased implementation for that legacy plan.
    • Lastly, along the way, some smaller portion of funds will likely always be put towards supporting implementation of smaller, concurrent but adjacent ecological or cultural restoration projects, as well as minor infrastructural repairs and improvements.

Tax-Deductible Donations for Restore The Springs

Through our nonprofit project Restore The Springs we are set up to receive tax-deductible donations of any amount. Restore The Springs is a fiscally-sponsored project of Inquiring Systems Inc., a 501c3, nonprofit company (EIN 94-2524840) based in Sonoma County, California. Funds donated to Restore The Springs exclusively support our creation of a regenerative 50+ year legacy plan for the Springs, the creation of a new nonprofit to operate the guest season, and the vital ecological, watershed and cultural restoration work we’re doing. Your support of Restore The Springs during our planning phases also helps us to advance to subsequent stages where we can additionally qualify for grant funding for implementation phases of our restoration work in the coming years. Checks can be made out to “Restore The Springs – Inquiring Systems,” and mailed to our mailing address in the footer below. Tax-Deductible Donations are a win-win way to give financial support; once we receive your support, you will be mailed a Thank You letter that includes the above EIN # for your tax returns. If you’d like more information about our nonprofit work or how you can support our work with Restore The Springs, please reach out to us via info@mortonswarmsprings.com.

 

In-Kind Donations & Volunteering

There are countless other ways you can be a part of helping our work unfold fruitfully here. In-kind donations are a type of giving where, instead of giving money, needed goods or services are offered. If you’d like to make a valuable in-kind donation, please reach out to us via our Contact Us page. We also frequently have volunteer days in various spheres and with projects currently underway at the Springs (most often working in our organic garden or with the wildtending and fire mitigation work we do in the landscape), and we’re always looking for good people who would love to volunteer some of their time and camaraderie! Also, if you have any professional skills you’d like to offer in service to the Springs, either gratis, in trade, or at a discounted rate (such as carpentry, plumbing or electrical, gardening and farming, outreach or administrative support) please reach out! This kind of community involvement is not only super helpful, it’s a true delight and a joy for us to work alongside each other, build community and get to know each other in this way! To hear of current volunteer days and opportunities, please reach out via info@mortonswarmsprings.com.
