Giving Tuesday With The River Parkway Trust

Giving Tuesday is a movement that has the potential to reach a wide audience through peer to peer sharing on social media. Every donation the River Parkway Trust receives on Giving Tuesday will help protect open space, restore wildlife habitat, educate children, and provide opportunities for people to get outside on the San Joaquin River.
This year, the River Parkway Trust will promote the special day of giving through their website and social media outreach tools. Giving Tuesday will be a day for people in our community to contribute to open space protection, environmental education, and providing public access to the San Joaquin River Parkway.
The River Parkway Trust will have a special donation page just for Giving Tuesday gifts, and will be posting photos and stories throughout the day to emphasize the good that they can do on this special day.
If you're looking to donate, feel free to head to their donation website here.
The San Joaquin River Parkway & Conservation Trust, Inc. (River Parkway Trust), a 501(c) 3 non-profit, public benefit corporation, was created in 1988 to establish a continuous greenway along 33 miles of river in the rapidly urbanizing Fresno-Madera region. The Parkway reach of the San Joaquin River is anchored on the upstream end at Millerton Lake State Recreation Area and Friant Dam; on the downstream end it is anchored at Skaggs Bridge Park at State Highway 145.
