Matching Gift Challenge April 23-24!

April 22, 2019

 

Your gift to Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition during the Give Local online-giving campaign April 23-24 will do more than twice the good! A generous donor has pledged to match all donations to PRWC through Give Local up to $10,000.
Please don’t let this generous matching opportunity float away.

Give a gift of $10 or more to PRWC between 7 a.m. on April 23 and 7 p.m. on April 24. Your donation is essential in helping to preserve, protect, and restore the quality and quantity of our most valuable resource - water. Every dollar raised during the 36-hour online giving campaign will be stretched further by bonus funds and prizes donated by Connecticut Community Foundation and generous sponsors. Please make a special gift to PRWC before the match runs out to have your gift more than doubled. Every gift at any level makes a difference!

All of PRWC's programs and activities underscore our collective roles as stewards of our environment. Your contributions make such a meaningful difference:

  • Programs on water resource protection for 1,200 school children in indoor and outdoor classrooms over the past year.

  • Our region's first EPA-approved Watershed Based Plan that details strategies for assessing and improving river conditions in the watershed that is home to over 60,000 residents.

  • Installation of a 1,000 sq. ft. rain garden at Community House Park in Southbury with 350 native plants that will capture and filter up to 390,000 gallons of stormwater runoff annually.

  • Removal of 5 tons of invasive plants from the banks of the Pomperaug River.

  • Collaborative projects and advocacy through local partnerships and State Water Planning, to improve the health, quantity and quality of water and habitat in the Pomperaug.

  • Installed 380 storm drain markers along 40 roads in Woodbury and Southbury.

  • Service growth experiences for 23 future environmental stewards through internship and youth conservation corps programs

  • Through PRWC’s newsletter, website, social media and media coverage, PRWC’s education outreach reached an audience of over 147,000.


​The PRWC mission is to promote clean water and sustainable use of water in our watershed, both groundwater and water in the river, by reaching out through education and fostering a science based understanding of the water resources we all depend on. Your support for our rivers means so much!
