Membership benefits rivers & businesses
We offer businesses a variety of ways to protect clean water and give back to the community. By joining the Clark Fork Coalition as a Business Member or by sponsoring an event, you gain valuable media exposure and the satisfaction of helping to protect and restore western Montana’s rivers and streams. With our community events, volunteer programs, and river advocacy work, the Clark Fork Coalition is highly visible and enjoys strong community backing. Your support aligns you with one of Montana’s top nonprofits, helping you reach new audiences across the region. Visit our Partners & Supporters page to see our current business partners.
The Coalition takes pride in creating innovative, visible sponsorship packages for corporate partners. From social media shout-outs to event banners and radio ads, we can tailor a sponsorship package that helps your business reach river lovers region-wide. Sponsorship packages vary based on the event and membership level:
Clark Fork River Cleanup Each spring, hundreds of volunteers gather in downtown Missoula for our community’s largest volunteer event, collecting trash from 15 miles of the Clark Fork.
Clark Fork Kids Float The Coalition offers a professionally-guided whitewater trip for underprivileged youth who have never floated a river before. Businesses may sponsor individual children or a full boat.
Volunteer River Corps Over 300 adults, students, and retirees help with dozens of on-the-ground restoration and monitoring projects that take place year-round, such as plantings, weed pulls, weed surveys, snowpack monitoring, and much more.
Walks and Talks We offer briefings, tours or interactive activities designed to keep residents up to speed on hot topics and riverside projects throughout the watershed.
We look forward to working with you!
