Your gift to our Annual Fund means more trash removed from the river, more kids getting hands-on quality nature education experiences, more land conserved, more park and trail development and much more!

We would love for you to be part of our community, and if you already are thank you!

By donating at least $10 to our Annual Fund, you will become a Friend of the River Park for one year. 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. We would love the opportunity to discuss with you how you would like to make an impact!

  • $10,000 to Support Major Disadvantage Community Grant for Forester Creek
    We have been awarded a $320,000 grant to do work in El Cajon to engage people in a better future for Forester Creek. We are working with the community in partnership with the Graduate Landscape Architecture Program at CalPoly Pomona to create a Recreation Access Plan for the Creek. We have also partnered with Earth Discovery Institute to help engage school age youth and the City of El Cajon.. This is exciting work, however, there are $10,000 in expenses that the grant will not reimburse. Therefore, we need to raise $10,000 to advance this important project. Learn More
