Other Ways to Give

As a 501c3 nonprofit (EIN 01-0565671) we depend upon your generosity. Thank you for considering to make a donation.

We are committed to our donors and do not trade, sell, or share your information.

Your gift to our Annual Fund means more trash removed from the river, more kids getting hands-on quality nature education experiences, more land conserved, more park and trail development and much more!

We have many big challenges and opportunities ahead of us: the future of the Stadium, open space at risk, a growing homeless population along the River and key open spaces going on the market. We need to increase our capacity to do more - to get more done, to have a louder voic,e and to engage more volunteers, experts, and champions while we also endeavor to advance the 52 mile long San Diego River Park and Trail System.

By donating at least $10 to our Annual Fund, you will become a Friend of the River Park for one year. If you are already a Friend, thank you for "renewing" or making an "additional" gift.

If you prefer, you can also focus a gift on a specific need or program. Since that is a "restricted" gift it will only be used for that purpose. We would love the opportunity to discuss with you how you would like to make an impact!
