Support Round River by Making a Donation

Round River is working and achieving success in some of the world’s most magnificently wild places and we are being asked to bring our own brand of community involvement and science to many other threatened landscapes.

As a [501(c)(3)] non-profit research and education organization, Round River meets many of its expenses through private donations.
You may play a significant part in our work through a donation to Round River. Pledges may be made for a specific project, geographic region, and scholarships for students or as general support.

Please review the different ways you may help in the menu selections or donate online now. You will notice there are separate payment systems for all except monthly giving (this one currently requires a checking account).

Follow these steps when making your donation:

Select the type of donation – one time, monthly giving, tribute giving or Edward Abbey Scholarship Fund. Click the drop down tab you are interested in. Follow the instructions for the payment method you wish to use, either credit cards or payments from a checking account.

Follow all the steps through to final checkout making sure to fill out all forms thoroughly and accurately so that your donation is appropriately allocated.

We are committed to involving dedicated and qualified students in our conservation projects and you can help facilitate their involvement. Donations to the Edward Abbey Scholarship Fund support domestic and international students, and by doing so, provide essential support to our conservation efforts as well.
