Thank you for supporting Freshwater

These are unprecedented times. If you are able, consider investing in Freshwater to help sustain our programs and services during this difficult time. Or, consider investing in the community organizations at the front-lines of COVID-19.

Freshwater’s work for water is funded by a diverse group of individuals, foundations, corporations, government agencies, and community organizations committed to preserving healthy waters in our region. Individual donations are a significant part of our annual operating budget of $1.3 million per year. In light of the rapidly changing environment regarding coronavirus (COVID-19), Freshwater, like many individuals and organizations, faces dramatic revenue losses. We will rely on community support more than ever at this time. If you are able, consider a donation today to help sustain Freshwater - or better yet - to the charitable organizations on the front-lines of COVID-19.

With your support, we remain 100% committed to our mission to inspire and empower people to value and preserve freshwater.
