Will you bring clean water home & triple your impact?

Why should a clean, pure Michigan be a four-hour drive away, when you & your loved ones live right here?

Make a gift for a cleaner hometown River today!

Your river and community face daily threats: chemical & sewage pollution, extreme weather, flooding, trash, tree removal, loss of open space, and less wildlife habitat.

You deserve a River that you and your loved ones can safely swim, tube, and fish from, right here. In your own community and backyard.

Now thru November 29 – the first $10,000 in gifts will be matched, dollar-for-dollar – so your impact and joy are doubled!

Or, be one of the first $2,000 in gifts on November 29th and TRIPLE your gift!

With your love and support, a cleaner Rouge River and a more vibrant future are possible.  

Your gift today builds Rouge River rain gardens. Your caring donation – doubled! – makes a mighty impact for cleaner water, less local flooding, more butterfly & songbird habitat, and more beauty.  Thank you for being the difference for a more livable future!

With thanks to your matching partners:


The first $10,000 in gifts will be matched by Bosch now through November 29th. On November 29th, the first $2,000 in gifts will be matched again by the Friends of the Rouge, Board of Directors, to triple your impact & gift. Then, every dollar gifted by caring Friends like you, will be put to hard work – where it is needed most – to bring a cleaner, purer Rouge River home to you and your loved ones.
