Ron Stork, Senior Policy Director

Friends of the River (FOR) is proud to announce a partnership with the Placer Community
Foundation, in establishing the Ron Stork River-Advocate Legacy Fund.  This fund was established to honor the long-time river advocacy work of Ron Stork.  As a Senior Policy Advocate for FOR, Ron’s award-winning work over the years has help establish FOR as a leader in the protection and conservation of California’s rivers.  In addition to FOR’s own work, Ron’s work is relied upon by numerous organizations throughout the state.  This permanent Endowment Fund, held by Placer Community Foundation, was created to support the mission of Friends of the River, and in particular our River Policy Advocacy work.

The Foundation accepts gifts of cash, public traded securities, real estate, life insurance, and other personal property.  Donors may make current gifts, or also arrange a future gift to the Fund through other charitable vehicles.  All gifts qualify for maximum tax advantage under federal law.
