Annual Giving – The Freshwater Fund
A gift to The Freshwater Fund plays a direct role in helping protect and restore freshwater ecosystems. Contributions to this annual fund are applied where opportunities and needs are most urgent. Whether as an Upstream Society member contributing $1,000+ annually or as a $10 recurring monthly donor, Freshwater Fund supporters at all levels accelerate the pace and scale of river restoration.
Capital Campaign – The Fund for Clear-Eyed Conservation
Clear-Eyed means having a shrewd understanding and no illusions. Supporters of our capital campaign to raise $3M by the end of 2018 are leaders who understand that the freshwater problems facing our country require bold action. Learn more about this campaign and its three strategic initiatives.
Sustaining the Future of Freshwater – Legacy Giving
Saving freshwater will take time. This isn’t a 5 or even 10 year problem – we need long-term support to be in this for the long haul. With legacy giving, you have the opportunity to reflect well beyond your lifetime and affect positive change for generations to come.
Business Leadership – Corporate Council for Freshwater
The Corporate Council for Freshwater is a group of both national and local businesses united to support freshwater health. These organizations play a vital part in helping The Freshwater Trust advance the pace and scale of freshwater restoration.
