River experts we trust
Southwest Rivers Grantees
Established in partnership with the Walton Family Foundation and leveraged with contributions from our individual and business partners, the Southwest Rivers Grants are dedicated to monitoring and maintaining the Dolores, Escalante, Gila and Verde Rivers. These grants are vital, protecting the legacy of decades of river restoration undertaken by communities that live along these rivers. These grants and contributors are committed to supporting these iconic places’ long-term health and resilience.
Grants are invitation only.
Launched in 2018, our Community Grants are focused on improving wetlands and wildlife habitat and sustaining functional flows. Community Grants are also focused on connecting communities to their rivers. While we have expertise in river conservation, we have much to learn. We are committed to deepening relationships with marginalized communities so that we can help create space and opportunity for excluded groups who want to protect rivers in their communities.
Grants are invitation only. Read about the impact of our 2023 grants here.
