Ways to Give

River Partners harnesses the power of community-driven efforts, uniting cutting-edge science and bold action to restore river corridors throughout California. Your gift will bring life back to our rivers and restore thousands of acres of fragile floodplain habitat. We are happy to work with you to match your goals with River Partners’ high impact work.

Life Income Gifts

River Partners accepts Life Income Gifts, which include Charitable Gift Annuities (CGA), Charitable Remainder Trust (CTR) and real property, through our partnership with Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF).

Neither River Partners nor SVCF is engaged in rendering financial or tax advice. Please consult with your financial and/or legal advisor. River Partners will work with your advisor(s) to make this process as seamless as possible.

Generally, the deduction from the creation of a charitable gift annuity is for the excess of your contribution over the present value of your life payments. The deduction generally runs between 20%-50% of the contribution, depending on the age of the beneficiary(s).

  • Retirement Plan
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Bequest in your estate plan
