Ogeechee Riverkeeper®

November 2022

We have a $5,000 matching donation this #GivingTuesday

Help us double it and get to $10,000! 

2022 is coming to a close and it has been ORK's biggest yet!

We expanded staff, our reach, our scientific testing capabilities, and made huge impacts on the health of our water basin, growing more this year than in any since our founding. And we want to close out our fundraising on a high note too. You can help make #GivingTuesday a success by giving before November 29 and sharing the news with your friends and family!

And look out for emails from us with #GivingTuesday in the subject line.
