We have all the basics in place - website, social media (Facebook 15k +, Instagram 2k+), mailchimp account (2.5k addresses), blog, podcast ability. We have three core programs - Creek Defender, Bay Friendly Yards, Great South Bay Oyster Project. What we are missing is a marketing plan that pulls it all together to maximize communications and fundraising.
It’s our bay, our heritage — and our legacy. We grew up clamming it, sailing it, swimming in it. Now our bay is sick, and we must heal it, for today and for the future!
Save The Great South Bay is a local 501(c)3 non-profit that advocates for and implements real solutions that will help restore the bay, and with that, strengthen our South Shore communities.
