American Whitewater works to protect and restore whitewater rivers across the country, and we rely on your ongoing support to keep our work on track. In the upcoming months, we will continue our stewardship work on the rivers you love and ensure that everyone has more opportunities to enjoy them safely.
 
Your membership dollars and donations will support our conservation efforts from protecting large landscapes and the whitewater rivers that flow through them to securing protections under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, restoring flows to rivers impacted by hydropower to advocating for removing deadbeat dams, and protecting flows threatened by water resource projects to our access and safety work. We've got our work cut out for us in 2017. Take a moment to see what your contribution will support in every whitewater region across the country in our 2016 Winter Appeal
 
Rest assured, your donations will be an efficient way to support river stewardship. 79 cents of every dollar goes directly to our river stewardship work and for the 7th year in a row, American Whitewater was awarded the highest rating from Charity Navigator! Only 3% of charities have received this designation at least 7 years in a row. 
 
Our stewardship projects protect and restore flows for healthy rivers and recreation, and your membership and tax-deductible donations keep our river stewardship program running strong.
 
As you begin to think about your charitable gifts for the end of the year, please take a look at our Winter Appeal and consider the value American Whitewater's work brings to you and the whitewater paddling community. We've got some exciting projects on the horizon and we hope we can count on your support! Become an American Whitewater member or make a charitable tax-deductible donation today!
 
The team at American Whitewater thanks you, and so do our rivers!
