Since 1994, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper has been working tirelessly to protect what was once the nation’s most polluted river. Our history of commitment to protecting one of our most valuable natural resources drives us to expand our education, volunteer and enforcement programs, year after year.

We boldly envision a future where families play and swim in rivers completely free of trash; paddlers explore off limits stretches of river; and wildlife thrives in and around lakes and tributaries. With your dedicated support, CRK will further expand its geographic reach and enhance the quality of life in our region. Your legacy can help secure the future of our river and safeguard it for future generations for decades to come.

Here’s an easy way to double your donation: Many companies will match employee donations to a charity. If yours does (check with your HR department to find out), just get the necessary paperwork, and enclose it with your gift when you mail it to CRK. CRK then processes the request on your behalf.

Alternately, you may be asked to complete a form at the time you make your gift, and your HR department will handle the request. Check with your company to learn the proper procedure.

Celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary with a gift to CRK, and in the process, support its year-round mission of protecting and restoring the Chattahoochee River.
