Pledge to support SWMTU’s Embrace a Stream grant
November 5, 2018 - November 11, 2018
Please join Orvis and Trout Unlimited in helping a great Michigan project unlock a share of the $50,000 prize pool we’ve put together to support their work!
The Embrace A Stream Challenge is a fun, week-long online competition encouraging all of us to “Give Where You Fish” and support local TU projects making the future of fishing better in 19 states across the country. The premise is simple, Orvis and TU have each put up $25,000 and invited volunteer-led projects to compete to win their share of the funds… But they need your help to win.
Here in Michigan, the Schrems West Michigan Chapter has embarked on a project to restore the Coldwater River – where brown trout up to 7 pounds have recently been caught!
This great project has already received grants from TU’s Embrace A Stream program, but now through Nov. 11, you can help the project directly by going to www.embraceastream.org and donating $10 or more. Every dollar donated goes directly to that TU chapter project, and your gift can help the chapter unlock matching funds and additional cash prizes of $100 to $1,000 for their work.
For example, Orvis and TU are offering a 50-cent match for every dollar raised up to $1,000, and the chapter with the most donations will win a $1,000 cash prize! There are more than 150 different prizes and match offers, meaning every donation – no matter the size – counts and your $10 donation could mean an additional $100, $500, $1,000 or more in funding for the projects that you choose!
Don’t wait! Donate today at www.embraceastream.org and help Orvis give back to the rivers – and the sport of fly fishing – that we all care so deeply about.
