We are a tax exempt, public charity that has been helping to coordinate events for organizations that work in the
public interest, since 1974. We focus on supporting grass roots activities, with education, outreach, networking and
funding, in the areas of the environment and wildlife, social change, peace with justice, energy and a non nuclear future.

Margaret Holmes
Beautiful Margaret Holmes, wife of Tom Campbell and loved by many, has left the Earth, but never our hearts and treasured memories.

Mrs. Holmes was a technical writer employed by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. From organizing Planned Parent events and the 1971 Earth Day Fair in Ogden, Utah, she invested more than 40 years volunteering in the areas of women's issues, conservation, and recycling. She considered "population and garbage" urgent world issues, and encouraged to reuse and power down.

We feel honored to have them as part of our team. All of them are devoted activists in their own rights.

Diane Leigh Koletzke
Diane has been deeply involved with the Guacamole Fund, in a variety of roles, since 1995.  She is also an activist with a focus on animals with whom we share our planet. A former animal shelter worker, volunteer and Board member, she developed many outreach and education programs, and is co-author of the book “One at a Time: A Week in an American Animal Shelter,” documenting life in US animal shelters. She also founded and served as president of the non-profit independent publisher No Voice Unheard, whose photojournalism books have won numerous national awards. Diane continues her work for a better world with her small business, Love Shared Collections, creating and selling handcrafted items and donating all profits to charity.

Mr. Keefe serves as general counsel for Kauffman & Associates, a public interest advocacy and health care consulting firm located on the Nez Perce Indian Reservation in Kamiah, Idaho. Mr. Keefe served as lead counsel in numerous Indian fishing rights cases in the Pacific Northwest. He has held a number of senior staff positions with the U.S. Senate, including counsel to Senator Brock Adams (D-WA), special counsel to the Senate Labor & Human Resources Committee for Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA) and chief counsel to the Senate Commerce Committee Subcommittee on Consumer Affairs under Senator Warren G.

Their clients include the United Nations World Food Fund and The World Tobacco Central Campaign.

Phil Lusk
Phil has spent the last 30 years working in the energy efficiency and renewable energy areas, and has been involved with more than 100 projects. Two of these received the National Award for Innovation from the U.S. Department of Energy. His best project was working with the Guacamole Fund as the Power Supply Coordinator for all Earth Day 2000 activities on the National Mall, at the time the world's most diverse and concentrated micro-utility demonstration of alternative generation and renewable energy technologies. He is also a long-time anti-nuclear activist, starting with the Kudzu Alliance in North Carolina in the mid-70's.
