Donating to Save The River in honor of a special event or person is a great way to acknowledge and honor their love for the St. Lawrence River. Consider donating to Save The River to celebrate weddings, birthdays, or to remember a special person who loved the River.
Many employers will match charitable gifts made by employees to their favorite charities. Check with your employer to determine if they offer a matching gift program and to determine the program eligibility requirements - you could double the impact of your membership donation!
