My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Winyah Rivers Foundation Inc, Conway, SC, USA
I have to agree with the previous review. I don't see where my money is making a difference with river protection. From most indications the water quality in the river is currently good, and I see other organizations doing more or at least are better at keeping me informed of conservation efforts. I'm going to watch closely over the next few months to see if activities are those I want to support.

Dear Palmettoproud, First, let me assure you that your donation is very impactful. It represents unrestricted funding for one full time and one part time employee of the organization to develop and implement our community engagement programs, including our volunteer water quality monitoring program on the Waccamaw River, our youth environmental stewardship programs anywhere within the greater Winyah Bay watershed, our paddle trail efforts using recreation to promote conservation within the Waccamaw watershed and beyond, and our advocacy efforts to convince Santee Cooper to remove its coal ash from the wetlands of the Waccamaw River and clean up the existing pollution of our groundwater and our surface water. That being said, I agree that I don't do a good job at keeping folks informed directly since I haven't written and mailed a newsletter for some time now. Last October I sent out an e-mail newsletter but I don't have e-mails for all of our members. I just wrote a short newsletter and have sent it by mail to all of our members. I hope you have received that. In the meantime, I have been more active through social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) but even I don't think that's enough. I hope you will continue to support our activities as your donation is making a difference with river protection and is truly appreciated! Thank you for your past support and I hope you will continue to support us. Regards, Your Waccamaw Riverkeeper Fishable, swimmable, drinkable water for our families and our future.
