Ways to Give

It takes a community to protect our precious lakes

Our waters are more at risk than ever before. One lake inside our watershed now suffers from an invasive plant infestation and an algal bloom.

Thank you to the generous supporters of the $30K for 30 Mile matching challenge. 137 donors stepped up in the final days of 2022 to help us raise $36,500 and exceed our goal! Your generosity ensures that our work for clean and healthy waters will not only continue, but expand to meet the growing challenges our watershed faces.

Once again, we’d like to give a shout out to the seven donors from Androscoggin Lake, Echo Lake, Flying Pond, Lovejoy Pond, Minnehonk Lake, Parker Pond, and Pocasset Lake who, collectively, made this opportunity possible by matching these gifts with an additional $30K.

Thank you to ALL of the generous lake lovers who supported 30 Mile this year! Your gifts of all sizes demonstrate your commitment to the lakes, ponds, and streams in our watershed. We are grateful for you and the many ways you show up as a community to help care for these precious resources.

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 one-time gifts to recurring gifts at whatever level works for you. Gifts large and small are all impactful.

Or mail your donation to 3o Mile River Watershed Association, P.O. Box 132, Mount Vernon, ME 04352 (postmarked by December 31st). Thank 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 2021 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.
