Ways to Give

Annual Membership

We invite you to join us in protecting the priceless asset represented by the American River and Parkway. It is SARA's belief that one of the most important contributions we can make to the Parkway is to grow our membership - to enhance our voice to a level that cannot possibly be ignored by the elected stewards of the 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 alert list which provides information about events on the Parkway.

How to Give



You can make a donation on-line now. This is a great way to join as a member, make a special contribution, or give a gift membership, a memorial gift or a gift in honor of someone. You can make an online donation via PayPal or without logging into PayPal as a guest.

Why do we use PayPal?

PayPal offers you the most options to pay. (Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover, bank debit cards, e-checks, direct transfer, and more.) PayPal has designed many checks and balances into its system to keep errors and fraud to a bare minimum. You won't find another online financial institution that's better at protecting its customers than PayPal. By utilizing the very latest in secure technology and employing a large team of experts in all areas of online safety, PayPal continues to be a leader in safe online payments around the world.

You can use PayPal without signing up for an account; however, we highly recommend one because it negates the need to enter all of your information every time you make a donation and allows for an up-to-the-date record of all of your purchases.
