adopt the river/Arroyo
sustain, protect & restore our watershed beyond your lifetime
Leave your legacy
We enlist critical sponsor and volunteer steward support to keep 30 stretches of the Santa Fe River healthy, by cleaning up trash and caring for vital native vegetation. More than 10 miles of river are cared for and over 1,000 bags of trash are removed each year.
Our river, our water, our future
Your legacy gift will ensure the health and well-being of your New Mexican family and neighbors for generations to come. You may choose how your gift will be used when it is received by the Santa Fe Watershed Association and can revise or remove your gift at any time.
Some examples of specific programs you can donate to are as follows:
We bring over 1,000 Santa Fe Public School students annually through the "My Water, My Watershed" program. Other programs include the New Mexico Climate Masters program, watershed tours, and monitoring programs for middle school students.
We partner with the City of Santa Fe, Santa Fe Public Schools, The National Fish & Wildlife Foundation, The Nature Conservancy, and other organizations and businesses in town to install rain gardens, preserve stream beds, and plant trees along the river.
Santa Fe Watershed Association
Your invaluable contribution to our Watershed does not have to be confined to your lifetime.
Including us in your estate planning ensures the healthy longevity of our water supply in the Northern New Mexico area by keeping our shovels digging, our lights burning, our instructors teaching, and our voices articulating the values that matter most, well into the future.
Your estate lawyer or advisor will want to know the following:
Our Tax ID Number: 86-0996109
Our Address: 1413 Second Street Santa Fe, NM 87505
We are organized and exist under the laws of the State of New Mexico
Please be certain to consult an estate planning attorney when preparing any legal documents.
When you include the Santa Fe Watershed Association in your will or estate plans, you leave a legacy for future generations, ensuring that they too will be able to enjoy the Santa Fe river that we cherish today. A planned gift - depending on your situation - may reduce your income taxes, reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes, reduce your gift or estate tax, provide income to you and your loved ones, and support the Watershed Association's efforts to protect our home watershed.
