buffalo and Old Faithful

Buffalo Field Campaign is excited to tell you about an opportunity that will benefit you and provide us greater flexibility and financial health. For years we have been paying a mortgage on our headquarters with an astronomical rate of 7.25%. We have a balance of about $200,000 that we would like to refinance at a lowered interest rate.

This is where you come in. We are looking for a few investors who would be interested in making a five year investment of $10,000 or more at an interest rate of 4% or less, if you choose.

We already have a commitment of $50,000 from one investor so we need to raise the remaining $150,000 in the next two months.

We have capped the interest rate at 4% but you can choose an interest rate that is lower if you choose. We are choosing to pay off the loan with payments that would pay off the loan at about the same time we would have paid off our current loan but, because this is an interest only loan for us, we can have the flexibility to pay back the loan with a substantially lower monthly payment if we encounter an unexpected expense or lean times.

The investment would be managed by a company that specializes in constructing loans specifically for nonprofits like ours named Semble. They have helped us set up an LLC that ensures your investment is secure.

This investment can also be used as part of a self directed IRA retirement plan

You can invest to help us to work harder to gain much needed protection for America’s last wild, free-roaming buffalo while providing our staff and front-line volunteers a warm and welcoming home to base our operations.

Because of their ecological, historic, and cultural significance, BFC proposes that buffalo are worthy of their own “Bill of Rights.” Together, through our mission, BFC’s Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers strive to defend the rights of these endangered animals.

BFC fights on behalf of buffalo, working to create a world where buffalo are:

  • Allowed to remain wild, existing in their natural state, in their native habitats, and for their own sake.
  • Honored and respected for their cultural and spiritual significance to the Indigenous People of this continent.
  • Recognized for their potential to educate our communities about sustainable and achievable co-existence between humans, wildlife, and the natural systems upon which our mutual existence depends.
  • Permitted to fully re-establish their historical migration patterns.
  • Helped to establish a sustainable population growth rate.
  • Appreciated and permitted to fulfill their inherent ecological role within their native range.
  • Free to live their entire natural life cycles as a wild species.
  • Sustained as the genetic wellspring for future wild, free-ranging buffalo populations.

We invite you to explore our website to learn, inquire, and become involved!

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will notify you via email within 7 business days

We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
