Spring is in the air and as another great paddling season comes into focus, we hope that you'll consider making a contribution to American Whitewater on GiveBig Day – Wednesday, May 9. GiveBIG is a one day event through the Seattle Foundation that makes your donation to American Whitewater go further. 
It's a great way to support our efforts which are exclusively focused on conserving and restoring whitewater rivers. Protecting free-flowing rivers, restoring flows to impacted rivers and ensuring that the public can access the rivers we all love, for generations to come – it’s what we do, and your contributions are critical to our success.  Check out some of our recent stewardship highlights in the Pacific Northwest.
Here's how it works:
Schedule or make your donation to American Whitewater through our Seattle Foundation webpage between now and 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, May 9, 2018.
Your gift will automatically go further through the GiveBIG stretch pool, thanks to numerous individual and corporate sponsors. The amount of extra money American Whitewater will receive depends on how much is raised on May 9. 
If you've let your membership lapse and donate $35 or more on GiveBIG day, we'll renew your membership. 
Tell your friends! Please help spread the word about AW and GiveBIG Day by sharing this Facebook post and Tweet.
Don’t forget, you don’t have to wait until May 9th. You can go to the AW GiveBIG webpage today to schedule your donation!
Thanks for your support!
