How to Help

We invite you to join with us in protecting the priceless asset represented by the American River and the American River Parkway. SARA depends on our members and friends for the financial and human resources needed to carry on our mission. You will receive our newsletter Riverwatch and be placed on our safety alert list which provides information about events on the Parkway. You can really help SARA by keeping your email information and mailing address up to date.

Send an email with the pertinent information.

Contribute to the Parkway Defense Fund

A tax-deductible Parkway Defense Fund (PDF) has been established to support efforts to protect the Parkway from inappropriate, illegal, and intrusive development.  The Parkway Defense Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (tax-deductible, Fed ID #680143852).  All donations are anonymous.  You can support this Fund by sending a check to the address listed below:

Save the American River Association
 c/o Betsy Weiland
4441 Auburn Boulevard, Suite H
Sacramento, CA  95841

Please include your name, address, phone number and email address.  Indicate whether you would like to remain anonymous if a public donor list is created.

You might consider contributing in the name of someone who loves the Parkway, or making a donation in memory of someone who worked on behalf of the Parkway in his/her lifetime.  All donations will be acknowledged, and gifts will be announced with a special card from Save the American River Association.  Please include your name and address and the information about the person you are honoring so that proper acknowledgment can be made to the honoree’s family.

Large numbers of the Parkway community have contributed substantial time and effort in opposing inappropriate development within the viewshed of the Parkway.  It is the community’s strong support that allows SARA to continue its 40+ years of work to protect and defend the lower American River and Parkway.  As always, your participation is vital and your generosity is greatly appreciated.
