Support Us

Our work is made possible through contracting with local businesses and construction companies, supporting the local economy. The majority of this money comes from outside grants to cover project costs, pumping outside dollars directly into the SLV economy. A nonprofit is just a relationship with the IRA, not a business model. We strive to support our local business and economy by sourcing our materials and labor locally.  

The Rio Grande Headwaters Restoration Project receives funding for operation and administration through project grants and from local sponsors. As with many other grants, the funds secured to date for the RGHRP either cannot be used or are limited as to the amount that can be used for administrative and project management. As such, it is necessary for the RGHRP to secure funding for administrative actions if the momentum and successes are to continue. Generous local sponsors such as the San Luis Valley Water Conservancy District and the Rio Grande Water Conservation District support the RGHRP. However, additional funding is needed.

Please donate to the RGHRP today! Your contribution will help ensure the Rio Grande is restored and conserved. Checks can be made to the Colorado Rio Grande Restoration Foundation and mailed to 623 4th Street, Alamosa CO 81101. Credit card payments may be made through our profile on ColoradoGives

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us!
