Support Our Work

Contributions to River Network empower and unite people to take action for the health of rivers and waters across North America by providing the resources, knowledge, and inspiration they need to succeed in their efforts. There are many ways to support a stronger network of river and water champions. Find the way that makes sense for you or your organization from the options below.

  • Planned Gifts. There are many ways to leave a legacy of strong champions for our rivers and waters. You can donate shares of stock or real estate, allocate a portion of your estate to River Network in your will, choose River Network as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy, or establish a charitable remainder or charitable lead trust that benefits River Network. Please contact us at 303-736-2724 x114 or if you are interested in learning more or if you would like to share your own plans for leaving a legacy.
  • Charitable IRA Rollovers. The qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is a special provision allowing certain donors to exclude from taxable income—and count toward their required minimum distribution—certain transfers of Individual Retirement Account (IRA) assets that are made directly to public charities, including River Network. For more details, see ‘Qualified Charitable Distributions’ on the IRS website.
  • Employer Matching Gifts. Ask your employer if they have a matching gift program that might double or even triple your donation to River Network!
