Ways to Give

We must act now before it's too late.

Our waters are more at risk than ever before. Lakes just outside our watershed suffer from toxic algal blooms and infestations of invasive species.

Your gift will allow us to keep going strong – supporting us to continue our mission to work as a community for clean and healthy lakes, ponds, and streams in our watershed.  We offer a variety of ways for you to contribute, from near to long-term at any level that works for you. 

Good news, changes to the charitable tax law – The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act creates charitable giving incentives for gifts made in 2020 to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, like 30 Mile. All taxpayers can deduct total charitable contributions of up to $300. Donors who itemize can fully deduct cash gifts equal to as much as 100 percent of their adjusted gross income.

Become a Watershed Warrior

Monthly donors lay the foundation of our organization. For as little as $10 a month, you are protecting the future of our lakes by making it possible for 30 Mile to take preventative action against known threats today.

The monthly amount will be deducted from your credit, debit, or bank account.
