#GivingTuesday doubles donations to Sound Rivers

After Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday comes a day that truly celebrates the season of giving, and several generous Sound Rivers’ donors are leading the way.

On Tuesday, Dec. 1 — Giving Tuesday — Sound Rivers will launch a holiday fundraiser in which each donation to the grassroots conservation organization will be doubled.

“We are thrilled to announce that several generous benefactors will be matching all gifts through Dec. 15, up to $15,000. During this first two weeks of December, your gift will go twice as far to fight for stronger clean-water protections, increase access to your rivers, monitor for threats to your waterways and hold polluters accountable,” said Heather Deck, executive director of Sound Rivers.

Deck said each donation will help keep Sound Rivers’ riverkeepers on the water on the upper and lower Neuse and the Tar-Pamlico rivers, directly impacting their work to protect the rivers, lakes and streams of eastern North Carolina.

“Your support keeps our mission to protect your clean water alive and strong, and we are so thankful,” Deck said.

Donations can be made through the Sound Rivers website at soundrivers.org/donate-now.

Help Sound Rivers in its mission to guard the health and natural beauty of the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico river basins. We partner with concerned citizens to monitor, protect, restore and preserve the watersheds covering 23% of North Carolina’s land mass, and help provide clean water to our communities for consumption, recreation, nature preservation and agricultural use.
