Did you know that one third of River Alliance’s charitable contributions arrive in the last 3 months of the year?

Here are some ways you can join in!

Consider a recurring gift: Recurring donations are an easy and sustainable way to protect Wisconsin’s water resources for future generations. It’s budget friendly too! Simply make a donation and check the box that says “Make this contribution recurring.”

Give a Gift Membership: Did you know that 46% of millennials volunteered for a cause affiliated with an issue they care about in the past month? How about that 64% of millennials signed a petition about issues they care about in the past month? Connect the millennials in your life to the amazing River Alliance community, unique outdoor events, leadership opportunities, and hands-on volunteer work that protects Wisconsin’s waters. Simply make a donation in any amount at, and check the box that says “I’d like to purchase a gift membership for someone.” River Alliance will notify them of your gift of membership.

Designate an IRA Distribution: Under the new tax laws implemented in 2018, charitable contributions are no longer tax-deductible for many people. However, if you’re 70 ½ and required to take an IRA distribution this year, you can turn that into a tax-saving opportunity by donating it to the River Alliance. This reduces your taxable income, which reduces your taxes. You do not need to itemize your deductions in order to take advantage of this approach.
