River Protector Endowment Campaign

River Protector Endowment Campaign

Choose your favorite section, become a River Protector!
173 Miles from Junction City to Kansas City

Friends of the Kaw along with our Board of Directors and Staff, are proud to announce our RIVER PROTECTOR CAMPAIGN! 

The Friends of the Kaw Endowment Fund was created in 2003 by the Board of Directors with generous donations from our members and supporters and we’ve already raised almost a third of our goal. 

Friends of the Kaw’s goal for the Endowment Fund is to provide long term sustainability of the organization and use the interest from it to provide for the KANSAS RIVERKEEPER position forever, for the Kansas River. 

Join our RIVER PROTECTOR PROGRAM to protect and preserve the Kansas River forever by “adopting” your favorite stretch of the river.  Give anonymously or be recognized on our donor roll as a River Protector.

A one-time $1,000 per-mile donation to the Endowment Fund allows you to “adopt” a one-mile stretch of the Kansas River. 

You can learn more today at BEERS OF THE KAW, or contact our Development Director, Mike Norris, or our Executive Director, Dawn Buehler, to learn more.
