Unleashing the Power of Your Paddle via JustGiving

Are you gearing up for a marathon this year or planning a paddling challenge? If so, your efforts hold the potential for much more than just personal achievement (fantastic though that is!). Read on to learn all about setting up a JustGiving page to support the Canoe Foundation’s work.

The days are getting longer and with that, the great outdoors beckon once more. 

With that in mind, the Canoe Foundation is inviting paddlers across the UK to turn their passion into purpose by setting up a JustGiving page to support our work improving physical access to UK waterways and coastlines for canoeists, kayakers and stand up paddleboarders.

Beyond individual accomplishments, this is an opportunity to contribute to getting more people on the water, more often. We believe the collective enthusiasm of the paddling community can create lasting ripples of positive change that will extend far beyond the riverbanks and coastlines!

The Heart of Our Cause

The Canoe Foundation is a charity that relies on donations to award grants to paddling groups across the UK. Our grants support projects aimed at improving physical access points to water; including the installation of pontoons, slipways, steps, car park improvements, disabled access hoists and more. For a snapshot of some of the amazing projects we’ve supported in recent years, check our Projects and News section. Heads up: we’ll soon be announcing the latest list of fantastic projects we’re supporting next!

Every little really does help

Remember, the Canoe Foundation relies on fundraising to be able to award grants that improve physical access points to water across the UK. Your JustGiving page doesn’t just raise funds; it becomes a crucial part of our mission to get more people on the water, more safely and sustainably, across the UK.

Setting up a JustGiving page to support the Canoe Foundation’s work really does make a difference. Together, let’s paddle for a purpose and make every challenge or adventure a meaningful contribution to improving sustainable accessibility to our precious waters. Thank you for your support.
