Support Freshwater Future by donating to our Walk, Paddle, and Roll Event
Freshwater Future’s staff and board are raising an additional $10,000 by walking, paddling, biking, swimming, and other great activities around the Great Lakes to further our work helping people access safe, clean water resources.
We need your help because everyone deserves safe, clean water resources from source to tap. You can make a difference today by donating to our Freshwater Future’s Walk Paddle and Roll Fundraising Challenge, which can be found here. With YOUR support, Freshwater Future will make sure that community groups across the Great Lakes have the tools and resources they need to help make their water sources safer and cleaner.
Ontario and U.S. residents share why #WeAreLakeErie
August 25th was the 5th annual celebration of #WeAreLakeErie, creating a virtual wave of support to push for actions to reduce phosphorus pollution that feed toxic algae blooms. Hundreds of users from various social media platforms participated through posting wonderful pictures and stories to highlight the importance of Lake Erie and the urgency to restore and protect this Great Lake. Freshwater Future as one of the founders of this movement is grateful for the massive participation of #WeAreLakeErie.
