Lindbergh Grant Recipient Gives Back

Kristina OwensHi!  I'm Kristina Owens.  The Lindbergh Foundation supported me with a Lindbergh Grant in 2002.  Their support made a huge difference in my life as well as the Bolivian people where I conducted my research.  Now I'm giving back by making a monthly contribution.  It was easy to set up right from the Donation page.  Your gifts to the Lindbergh Foundation will support people like me who are working to make important contributions to our global environment.  Won't you join me?

The re-curring contribution option allows monthly, quarterly, biannual or annual payments.  Breaking up your contribution into smaller amounts can make giving easier on your budget than planning a lump sum.

New Associates receive an embossed certificate featuring the Spirit of St. Louis and the Lindbergh Foundation newsletter.
