Memorial Funds

American Whitewater accepts memorial gifts established by family or friends. By giving a memorial gift in memory of a family member or friend you recognize and affirm their passion for paddling and importance of river stewardship. A memorial gift reflects your desire to make a lasting impact on the stewardship of whitewater rivers.

Creating a Memorial Fund

To set up a memorial gift fund please contact American Whitewater at info@americanwhitewater.org or 866-262-8429. Memorial gift funds that support general stewardship projects are most helpful. In special situations, and in consultation with American Whitewater staff, funds can be restricted to specific projects or regions of the country at the time they are established.
