All of our plans for the future and accomplishments of the past could not and will not be completed without the involvement and support from our many partners. Paid memberships and donations of time and materials all contribute to the successful completion of our goals. Your support not only provides some of the direct fiscal support necessary for our organization to continue but it provides matching funds for some of our grant funded projects.
We believe integrity and respect are inherent in all our core values. Education: We are dedicated to educating our community by increasing local watershed knowledge through active engagement. Stewardship: We are dedicated to taking care of our River environment and community relationships. Leadership: We are dedicated to developing and influencing current and future leaders. Please make an investment in River Keepers so that we can use our core values to accomplish our mission of advocating sustainable use of the Red River of the North.
Some of our members are employees of companies that match memberships. These companies are making a commitment to the community and supporting their employee’s volunteerism. Check with your employer to determine if they have a matching gift program.
We also appreciate hearing from members if they are aware of corporate giving programs. Several corporations currently support River Keepers through our corporate membership program. Usually these companies prefer to support organizations that their employees support.
