We are so very pleased to share that the Red River Basin Commission
has recently established an Endowment Fund and now those that wish
to donate to the RRBC, in Canada, can help us with our Vision...
"A Red River Basin where residents, organizations and governments work together to achieve basinwide commitment to comprehensive integrated watershed stewardship and management."
This fund, which is professionally managed by The Winnipeg Foundation,
will provide secure and stable funds for the RRBC to continue to move
forward - today, tomorrow and for many years to follow.
