Give Where You Live this #GivingTuesday

This holiday season, the Anacostia Watershed Society is reaching out to our friends to join the spirit of generosity and donate online to support our important work for a clean and healthy Anacostia River. Through the Catalogue for Philanthropy and #GivingTuesday, we turn to donors like you who share the passion to protect and restore our favorite river.

You can expect results with your #GivingTuesday gift to the Anacostia Watershed Society. Our sound fiscal management practices and commitment to accountability and transparency earned us our fourth consecutive 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, a distinction made by just 11% of charities. Rounding out our top honors from non-profit evaluators, we also received the new Platinum rating from GuideStar.

The Anacostia Watershed Society had a direct role in cultivating the incredible trip you take on the Anacostia River Trails. We updated our popular Map and Guide this year, adding in the new docks we helped to install, and marking fresh stretches of completed bike trails. These paths take you past 12 acres of wetlands we restored last year, now filtering the water while providing habitat for wildlife. They take you through the 10 acres of riverside greenspace we are cultivating this year, replacing trees and restoring meadows.

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 to a trusted local non-profit that has a direct impact on your community.

Please spread the word to your friends, and help us reach our goal of $10,000 this #GivingTuesday. Thank you so much for supporting a swimmable and fishable Anacostia River, and happy holidays from all of us at the Anacostia Watershed Society.

Show your support for a fishable and swimmable Anacostia River by making a tax-decuctible gift this #GivingTuesday!
