Friends of the Rouge relies on the generous support of our donors. Your donation helps fund our programs that promote restoration and stewardship of the Rouge River ecosystem.
FOTR is supported by individual and business memberships, corporate sponsors, state, federal, and private grants, and individual contributions. In May 2014, the Rouge River National Wet Weather Demonstration Project, funded in part by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, ended. This program was a significant source of our annual funding. Please consider supporting Friends of the Rouge today.
