Donate Now
Your support today will make a difference


Your gift of $10, $25, $100 or more to our Annual Fund will support a better future for the San Diego River and the work of The San Diego River Park Foundation.
Thank you!

Other Ways to Give

By donating at least $10 to our Annual Fund, you will become a Friend of the River Park for one year. Your gift will be used where it is most needed. 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. There are always many other opportunities to have an impact so if you don't see something of interest, please contact us, and we would love to share some ideas.

and Programs

  • River Center at Grant Park
    Fundraising for the project's "Park" phase is now happening.
    We received an amazing $1 million challenge gift from the Conrad Prebys Foundation to support construction of this nature education center in Mission Valley! With your gift today, we will be one step forward to providing nature experience programming to 25,000 kids per year.

  • Land Acquisition Fund
    We are working to conserve an scenic and important open space area along the South Rim of the upper San Diego River. Teaming with wildlife, this area is at risk of being sold and built on. The Land Acquisition Fund is used to purchase land when it goes on the market. It is critically that we are able to act quickly when properties are being sold. .

Trash Free River Campaign

We believe all rivers should be trash free. Sadly, an estimated 1 million pounds of trash enters the San Diego Riverbed each year. Your gift will support efforts to change this. We organize 2-3 cleanups every week, work with landowners and public agencies, and advocate for policy changes to reduce the flow of trash into the river.

Make an INSTANT IMPACT! - $400 Needed

Donate toward a 16 inch Echo Battery Powered Chainsaw w/ battery and charger

Are you looking to make an immediate impact?
One of our volunteer teams is looking for help.

A battery powered chainsaw is needed by our Volunteer Preserve Stewards. The saw will be used to trim fallen limbs and trees and to trim back growth along recreation trails.

Since the saws are battery-powered, they can be charged with solar panels. No gas is needed! They will also support habitat restoration.

The cost is $400 and it includes one saw as well as an extra chain and chain oil so they can get going right away.

Your gift of $10, $20 or more will go directly to buying these items. Your gift today will provide volunteers what they need to continue to do their awesome work!
