Longtime MAKC members and supporters Bob and Bev Danielson, now of Durango, Colorado, and formerly of Cleveland, Ohio, gave other MAKC members and supporters a challenge.

For every $1 donated by MAKC members, over and above dues renewals, Bob and Bev not only matched it, but donated $3, until they expended $10,000.

The Danielsons have been supporters of MAKC since we formed, and are interested in having their part of the donation help feed into our endowment fund to help us Preserve the Caves of Today for the Cavers of Tomorrow well into the future.

Thanks Bob and Bev, for all that you do for cave conservation!
