Small donation. Huge ripple effect.

With its 51-mile ecosystem that connects so many of our neighborhoods to each other, the LA River is a not-so-hidden gem of our region. For over 30 years, Friends of the LA River and our partners have worked to get the River to the People and the People to the River. We envision a dynamic, verdant LA River that supports vulnerable communities in climate adaptation, reduces flood risk, cleans the air, cools temperatures, and supports the biodiversity essential to our collective well-being.

Make a donation to Friends of the LA River today. Your contribution helps fund the core pillars of our organization: equitable K-12 education, community building, public awareness, and action on the River. Whether you give $10 or $100, every donation supports our efforts to build capacity for communities, students, and future leaders to advocate for climate justice and equity at the LA River.
