Your donation directly benefits RiverLink’s mission to promote the environmental and economic vitality of the French Broad River and its watershed as a place to live, learn, work and play. Yes, we get grants and other funding for our major projects, but it takes donations from people like you to keep the lights on and the computers humming. Simply put, we can’t do what we do without you.

RiverLink is comprised of a small staff – 5 full-timers, 3 AmeriCorps members – and to accomplish our goals we need more hands and hearts at work. From helping at our special events to pulling muddy tires out of our streams and rivers, there is a way for everyone to get involved.
