Become a RiverPatron

Join an exclusive network of RiverPatrons and help to preserve our most important resource for generations to come. Become a champion for clean, sustainable and resilient rivers and waterways.

Improper management of our world’s rivers and waterways is already beginning to have devastating effects on wildlife, ecosystems and communities. It is our mission at the International RiverFoundation to champion the health and resilience of rivers and waterways around the world, using our 1000+ Resilient Rivers Blueprint. We need your help to roll out our 1000+ Resilient Rivers Blueprint on a global scale. RiverPatrons are essential for enabling the International RiverFoundation to conduct our essential and time sensitive work.

Benefits of becoming a RiverPatron

  • Network with like-minded executives
  • Receive VIP access to International RiverFoundation events
  • Be recognised as an environmental leader and change maker
