Seedlings in Pots


Hi friends of the Red River Basin Commission, 

Are you interested in giving a gift that keeps on growing and giving well into the future?

These funds help us to continue working together to achieve common goals for water protection and water management within the Red River Basin. 

The Red River Basin Commission has been actively pursuing grass roots solutions to Red River challenges for almost four decades. 

As part of the Board of Directors' goal to sustain the organization into the future, a permanent endowment was created in 2020. 

The initial fund was established in the United States and can be a full charitable donation.

The U.S endowment was funded with contributions that have been made over the last

several years.

We are very happy to announce that some contributions have been made in memoriam to a former member of the RRBC Family (Milt Arneson) - as listed below in our In Memoriam wall. 

Discussions are ongoing to establish a charitable vehicle in Manitoba, though establishment generally requires an initial donor. 

The Board is planning to establish long term policies for the use of proceeds to further the goals laid out in the Natural Resource Framework Plan (NRFP) as well as a capital campaign to grow the endowments in both the United States and Canada. 


As you are planning your estate or considering your annual tax liability, we would love to discuss if there was a way to secure tax  benefits or matching contributions. We would be happy to explore funding of particular goals in the NRFP or any partnerships that would support mutual goals.

Sincere thanks for these thoughtful gifts given In Memorium
