So Far the Vanguard has Raised $2790 of our $4000 Goal – We have $1210 to raise still

For those readers who remember 2013-2014, it was a tough time running the Vanguard.  In December 2013, our longtime website crashed and died.  We ended up having to hire a new company to build it from scratch.  But while we built a new site – at a huge cost – the site that replaced it was attacked immediately by bots and it too went down a few months later.

We had a website that was down twice for about 10 days a piece.  Not a happy time.

In the fall of 2014, we hired Uptown Studios and lunched the current website in September 2014 and we have not a problem since.  But now it is time to update the current website.  This is not a full rebuild, but rather a re-design and it will modernize and optimize the site.

Still the cost won’t be cheap – about $4000.  So for our fundraiser this year, we will be financing the new site – and maybe get us a few extra doctors to help pay our normal and ongoing costs.

As usual – you can help with a $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, $1000 or $5000 contribution.  Whatever you can afford or would like to give, we appreciate.

To donate, we have three options:

Option one: our gofundme:

Option two: paypal by going to and hitting donate at the top or directly at

Option three: by check: Davis Vanguard, PO Box 4715, Davis, CA 95617

Thanks so much for your support.

To date we have raised more than $2790 of the $4000 after the second week of the fund drive.  We have $1210 to raise still.

        I see the smoke in the photo, now.

        I won’t “thank” the fires, but I will thank Measure J/R (and those behind it) for saving this property from development. And, I’ll thank you for sharing the beauty of it.

        The flowers/plants are crystal-clear, in your photo. And, you captured the sun at just the right time/position in your photo.

        If only you’d use your photographic ability for the “good”, more often. 🙂
