Donate Today & Win

Set a Recurring Monthly Donation & Win!

Together we can make a difference to our desert environment. Would you consider making a recurring, sustainable donation each month to help us educate more people on the important role water plays in our desert communities? Will you Make a Splash to help us? Even the smallest stone can make lasting ripples…

Each Sustainable Donation entry between now and 12/31/22 will be entered into a prize draw raffle to be drawn on January 03, 2023.

Every $10/month increment that you commit to in your recurring donation earns one raffle entry, so if you commit to $50 a month, you’ll get five entries! There’s no upper donation limit, but $10/month is the minimum.

If you’d like to make a one-time donation (rather than recurring) , the minimum donation to qualify for the prize draw is $120 – there is no maximum! Each one-time donation will receive one prize draw entry per $120 donated.
