Raise the River – Gifts for the Goal!!!

Raise the River is making good progress on our Go For The Goal outreach to raise the final $25,000 of the initial goal of raising $10 million – funding necessary to our efforts to reconnect the Colorado River to the sea and restore life in the Delta.

But we still need your help – and, we want as many people as possible to join us in winning this historic campaign to restore the beloved Colorado River. To help inspire more contributions, today we are adding Gifts for the Goal!

When you donate:

  • $25, you’ll receive a DVD of our WATERSHED film, executive produced and narrated by Robert Redford, which generated widespread awareness to the River’s plight and challenges, and has become central to the grassroots effort to save the Colorado River.
  • $50, you’ll receive a WATERSHED logo 6L stainless water bottle. Eco-friendly and compact, it’s a practical reminder of your contribution to this cause.
  • $100 or more, you’ll receive a WATERSHED logo 6 oz. stainless steel flask – for the discriminating imbiber to bring along their preferred beverages.

And when you donate today, you double the impact of your giving to bring water and life back to the Delta, as Hunter Industries will generously match, dollar-for-dollar, all contributions to Raise the River up to $25,000 from now through October 31. We are immensely appreciative of Hunter Industries, and their stewardship and commitment to the Colorado River.

So much progress has already been made — we’ve planted more than 160,000 cottonwood and willow trees on 654 acres of restored land, since reconnecting the Colorado River with the ocean for the first time in 60 years, just over a year ago. But perhaps the most inspiring of the results has been witnessing the restoration of community pride among the residents living along the Delta corridor, who have their river back again, and with it, new forms of economic opportunity.

Won’t you join us? Donate now, and be part of bringing home this landmark win for conservation and our iconic river.
