How will my donations be used?

Donations will be used to:

  1. Maintain the website (pay the annual registration costs for the domain names and for space on the web-server that hosts the site).
  2. Fund our webmaster's time to make updates and do things like post new maps.
  3. Pay for some of the time that goes into creating new maps. Much of the work of creating new maps is done by volunteers but there are some steps where we need professional support.
  4. Promote ExploreRI so that more people know to look at the website for information about paddling and hiking in Rhode Island.

Who am I donating money to?

ExploreRI is a partnership between the Rhode Island Blueways Alliance and the Rhode Island Land Trust Council. Both are not-for-profit organizations. ExploreRI donations are handled by Friends of the Moshassuck, a Rhode Island and federally registered 501c3 non-profit organization. Friends of the Moshassuck is fiscal agent for ExploreRI.
