Future of Fresh Water Initiative
Goal: $20 Million
Nowhere else in the world is there an organization like Stroud Water Research Center, which has spent 51 years focused on understanding, preserving, and protecting fresh water. To strengthen ongoing research and to expand community empowerment programs to protect clean fresh water regionally and around the world, the Stroud Center has announced its Future of Fresh Water Initiative.
Help us reach our goal. Give to the Future of Fresh Water Initiative. Gifts to the Executive Director’s Fund and the Environmental Education Fund will be DOUBLED thanks to generous challenge grants!
