Support of the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy makes many community programs possible, while maintaining the safety and beauty of the Detroit RiverWalk and the Dequindre Cut Greenway. The Conservancy depends on community support to fund patrol, security cameras, and emergency call boxes located every 500 feet along the RiverWalk.

Your generous support will help us continue to grow and expand our footprint, programs and positive impact to our great city. Our levels of giving provide access to unique experiences and benefits while supporting our vision for the future of the riverfront and the operations of the present.
