Give Where You Live this #GivingTuesday

This is the time when the Anacostia Watershed Society reaches out to our friends to donate online to support our important work for a clean and healthy Anacostia River. Through #Giving Tuesday, we turn to donors like you who share the passion to protect and restore our favorite river.

Give where you live this #GivingTuesday, and you can make a difference right in your neighborhood. When you donate online to the Anacostia Watershed Society, you make a gift that has a direct local impact.

  • A student in your neighborhood may have been among the 2,173 that we engaged this year in our three part service-learning program, completing a restoration project with their class that had a direct effect of the Anacostia River. That kid around the corner has hands-on experience doing the important work to clean the river, and the Anacostia Watershed Society taught them how.
  • We monitor the health of the Anacostia River, and ensure that we keep making progress towards swimmable and fishable. Local jurisdictions depend on our Annual State of the River Report Card to be informed of the river’s condition, and your support this #GivingTuesday is essential to help us produce it.
  • The Anacostia Watershed Society had a direct role in cultivating the gorgeous trip you take on the Anacostia River Trail. When you ride or walk along the riverside, you see the wetlands we are restoring, filtering the water while providing habitat for wildlife. You see the sun shining off the Anacostia River beside you, bouncing off waters getting cleaner every year. And you see your friends and neighbors, all enjoying the same treasure that you value. 

Please spread the word to your friends, make it a point to #GiveWhereYouLive, and help us reach our goal of $5,000 this #GivingTuesday. Thank you so much for helping us do this!

It's easy to get caught up commercial whirlwind of the gift-giving season, and #GivingTuesday is a day to step back and support the local non-profits and charities that could use your help in the holiday rush. #GivingTuesday gives everyone with a philanthropic heart the chance to prove this holiday season is about giving back.

• You don't have to be a Rockefeller to be a philanthropist. #GivingTuesday is about ordinary people coming together doing extraordinary things.

• Give more, give smarter, and put personal philanthropy back into the giving season. 

• Show that locals can give as good as they get. #GiveWhereYouLive
