Perhaps the most important near-term goal, underpinning all of its other programs, is the acquisition of an appropriate river-front site and the construction of a multi-use boathouse. By establishing a permanent home for boats and equipment, DRRF believes that it can foster greater cohesion and continuity among the organizations and individuals using the river for sport and recreation. As a 501c(3) tax-exempt organization, DRRF is soliciting donations and in-kind support from local philanthropies, governments and individuals to help realize the vision of a vibrant community of active, healthy and civic-minded youth and adults. By making the most of our region’s unique geography, we can help to diversify and strengthen our local economy. By developing the skills, fitness and environmental awareness of our youth, we can have a positive and lasting impact on the future of our beloved Delaware River and the communities along its banks.
