Thank You

The National Great Rivers Museum and Meeting of the Rivers Foundation truly appreciate your interest in supporting our educational facility. Every donation contributes to the continuation of our mission and future of the facility.

Benefits of Your Donation

Outreach, educational programing, and routine exhibit maintenance are primarily funded through donations made to our Illinois-based, non-profit organization. Without our contributors, Meeting of the Rivers Foundation and the National Great Rivers Museum could not provide the amenities and services that support our mission to encourage and instill stewardship for the Mississippi River.

How You Can Donate

In Person
Come visit us! Donations can be made in person at the museum any day of the week between 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Take a tour of Melvin Price Locks and Dam while you are at it. Tours are held at 10:00 a.m. 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Meeting of the Rivers Foundation can now accept donations online! Please use the donate button at the bottom of this page to make your contribution. While we are happy to be able to provide this convenience and are appreciative of any gifts of any amount, if you plan to give a large gift, please consider donating via check or in person, as our online system takes 5.4% of your donation as a processing fee.
