Deep gratitude and sincere, warm thanks to the many generous donors who give financially to the Coastal Watershed Council throughout the year, including some of you who give on a monthly basis. CWC donors’ generous gifts add to the time and energy invested by our volunteers, staff, Board of Directors and partners. For some, philanthropy comes to mind near the year end, either because of the overall gracious sentiment of the holiday gifting season, because one can assess how the year’s finances are ending up or as an annual year-end act of gratitude.

Whether you give throughout the year or this month, CWC invites you to consider how a financial gift to the river will make you feel. When you give to CWC, you’re helping us get kids outside through field trips to the river that connect kids’ science book lessons to the natural world. Your gift to CWC helps families, especially those who live nearest the river, attend free events throughout the year. They learn about the river and shape the Riverwalk by planting native species as an investment in a cleaner, healthier river. And by giving to CWC, you can feel good knowing you’re supporting the only organization with a sole focus on the future of this special river. Thank you again for considering a gift to CWC this holiday season.
