WV Rivers' Science Fund keeps science and facts at the forefront of legislative debate. Thanks to a pledge from a generous donor, the first $10,000 donated to WV Rivers' Science Fund between now and the end of the legislative session, April 8, will be matched! 

Here's how we'll put your donations to work: 

Science-based defense against policies that harm West Virginia's water. Our Science Advisor, Evan Hansen of Downstream Strategies, 
provides fact-based scientific testimony to the Legislature. This requires exhaustive research and policy analysis to counter industry claims. We need $10,000 to make sure the Legislature continues to hear testimony supporting scientifically sound water policies.

Telling you the facts about what's happening to our water. Though our weekly
water policy updates and publications we make sure that you understand what’s happening and what it means for our water. We’re working with the media to hold our decision makers accountable and force transparent decision making. This is labor-intensive work. We need to raise $5,000 to keep you up-to-date on water policy.

Keeping West Virginian’s voices front and center. We give you the tools to make your voice heard. Through 
fact sheets, action alerts and technical assistance WV Rivers works hard to make sure you are part of the discussion.We need $3,000 to keep it easy for you to submit your comments on water policy.

Lobbying for safe water. We’re at the Capitol as your advocate for our rivers and streams. We're going head to head with high-paid industry lobbyists to make sure our legislators have the facts. One gift of $1,000 will be doubled to send a team of West Virginians to Washington DC; $6,000 funds our legislative work in Charleston. 

WV Rivers' Science Fund is paid for by people like you. We can't do it without you!
