How To Give

We need your support to help us improve access to and protect the water quality of our lakes and rivers.

By improving access, we can engage more people out on the water. When people have fun and positive experiences on the water, they fall in love with a place. It’s this sense of care that leads to a curiosity about what makes a place special and nurtures an instinct to protect it.

Your gift will help continue efforts to provide access, education and stewardship of the Chain of Lakes Water Trail.

Paddle Antrim is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and your gift may be tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
