StewardshipIt takes a village to pull off Clean Your Streams for 27 years running! We want to highlight some of the sponsors who make our programs possible, and share ways that you can contribute to our mission all year long.

First of all, we’d like to thank again a returning grant funder for 2023. In 2022, we announced that the Greater Toledo Community Foundation approved a grant from the Sisters of St. Francis Foundation Donor Advised Fund to Partners for Clean Streams for $17,535 to support marine debris removal efforts. This grant supported Clean Your Streams 365 programs earlier this year, and was also a key source of funding for the 27th Annual Clean Your Streams.

Partners for Clean Streams benefited from one returning Community Partner sponsor this year: O-I Charites Foundation. We are also grateful for the three Underwriter sponsors of The Andersons, Inc., Arcadis, and Jones & Henry Engineers and eight returning Underwriter sponsors. University of Toledo, First Solar, Lucas County Storm Water Utility, City of Toledo Environmental Services, City of Oregon, Kwest Group, NSG Glass North America, and OmniSource are repeat Underwriters! We are so grateful for these businesses, organizations, and municipalities’ continued commitment to our waterways. For a full list of our 27th Annual CYS sponsors, click here.

We are also supported by generous individuals who see the difference that our programs make both for our waterways and for the volunteers who get an opportunity to uplift their communities. You can make a one-time gift to Partners for Clean Streams online, or become a sustaining donor through our membership program. Consider getting involved with workplace giving via our partnership with Northwest Ohio Community Shares, or let your everyday shopping contribute to our programs via the Kroger Community Rewards program.
