Financial Contributions

Our Culture of Philanthropy

Clearwater’s Culture of Philanthropy depends on the love we feel for Clearwater, the bonds we share because of our commitment to Clearwater’s mission, vision, and values, and our belief that we are all stewarding Clearwater into the future. It is not simply about raising money, but about building relationships with all members of the Clearwater community, communicating, and most especially about listening to each other. Inherent in this approach is that all of us accept some responsibility for Clearwater’s future by serving as ambassadors, giving of our time and talents, and supporting Clearwater financially to the extent we are able.

Clearwater will continue to do the best job possible to raise money because we need money to accomplish our mission. And we want all contributors to be engaged, to understand and help define the future, to know that every voice matters. We hope you will notice the subtle changes that are taking and will take place as a result of Clearwater’s Culture of Philanthropy, and we look forward to paddling forward together!

Your financial support will continue to provide girls and young women the opportunity to discover their true selves, grow in their understanding of others, develop a deep love for nature and grow toward purposeful maturity. THANK YOU for considering an investment in our work.
