Becoming a River Donor is an effective way to show you care about our environment on an ongoing basis. Every single donation is important. Your gift of $25, $50, $100 or any other amount helps the River Institute study and promote a healthy St. Lawrence River. We’ll be sure you receive regular updates and news about the impact of your donation. Your contribution to River Institute Foundation will help:

Carry out vital research activities to keep our river healthy and beautiful.

Enhance our education programs to ensure children grow up with a deep appreciation for science, the river and the life it supports.

Grow our range of community programs to connect with our neighbours and build awareness of important river issues.


River Champions is a donor circle that enables direct, meaningful and long-term relationships with people who contribute $1,000 or more to River Institute each year. The support of River Champions is critical to help us understand and protect the St. Lawrence River and its ecosystem. As a River Champion you will receive:

Our quarterly Beneath the Waves electronic newsletter.

Invitations to the River Institute Symposium and other special events.

Annual updates about River Institute programs.

A decal suitable for your business, vehicle, or boat.

Thank-you River Champions for your continued support!
