The generous Rio community has pledged almost half of our $38,000 goal needed to qualify for the Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority Grant. We will be buying 6 new boats, as well as a few new ergs. You can find details on the grant and the application process at the bottom of this page.
Our goal is $38,000, but we need $19,000 by this Friday, 6/28, to qualify for the grant. Click Here for the pledge form.
Money needs to be pledged, but will not be collected until the grant is awarded in September. Email your completed pledge form to Michele MacCollum at email@example.com
This AZ-STA grant is a 2/3 match! So for each $1.00 you give, Rio gets $3.00!

Details: Rio has an opportunity to upgrade our fleet! We are applying for a grant that would cover up to 2/3 of the cost for 6 new boats! We are asking members to help Rio reach our $38,000 fundraising goal by June 28th, when the grant will be submitted. Once we raise $38,000, the grant will cover the balance of the expense, which is $77,000! Please donate now! Click here for details.
