Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) and River Network have teamed up to offer the Business for Water Stewardship Project Bank (BWS Project Bank), a new online clearinghouse to support growing corporate interest in projects that restore river flows and recharge ground water, and to expand funding opportunities for dues-paying River Network member organizations and their river restoration projects.
The BWS Project Bank offers an opportunity for organizations to represent their watershed restoration projects on a national platform. BEF uses the Project Bank to share and learn about organizations and restoration projects and to represent specific projects to corporations seeking opportunities to support environmental water stewardship. Where there is a match between corporate interest and restoration projects, companies may elect to provide funding to support those efforts. In a few very instances, BEF may have corporate funds available for immediate investment.
