Giving Tuesday With The River Parkway Trust

Nov 23, 2016 01:01PM, Published by Melanie Heisinger, Categories: Community Spotlight




The San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust, Inc. has participated in this global day of giving for the last 4 years, and each year they have seen an increase in support.

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

About the San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust

The San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust's mission is to preserve and restore San Joaquin River lands having ecological, scenic or historic significance, to educate the public on the need for stewardship, to research issues affecting the river, and to promote educational, recreational and agricultural uses consistent with the protection of the river’s resources.

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.

For more information about them, feel free to read our previous article, "Local Spotlight: San Joaquin River Parkway & Conservation Trust Protects The River's Resources," or visit their website.
