We Need YOU! Support Our Stewardship Work in 2019

American Whitewater is set to come out swinging in 2019, protecting rivers and access, restoring flows, and creating new ways to provide the beta you need to get out and paddle, but we can’t do it without your ongoing support to keep our work on track. American Whitewater is your true bipartisan river recreation and conservation organization working for your interests and creating opportunities for you to spend time on the river. We know that protecting and restoring rivers, and our access to them, creates more opportunities to spend time on the river, and we believe that when we spend more time with rivers, we become better stewards of rivers.
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 2019. Take a moment to see what your contribution will support in every whitewater region across the country in our 2018 Winter Update
Rest assured, your donations will be used in an efficient way to support river stewardship. 83 cents of every dollar goes directly to our river stewardship work and for the 8th year in a row, American Whitewater was awarded the highest rating from Charity Navigator! Only 2% of charities have received this designation at least 8 years in a row. 
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!
