Before The End Of The Year, Help Connect Students Kids To Columbia River Cultures

November 21, 2016

Dear Friend of Confluence,

#ConfluenceConnects students to place through art and education by introducing them to native artists and tradition keepers who share what it means to be from the river, why art and culture are important, and how education creates change. Before the end of the year, help support this important work by supporting Confluence in the Classroom. The unique program brings indiginous educators into schools to do meaningful projects about the Columbia River system. Our indigenous educators bring the cultures and traditions of the river into the classroom and they lead the kids out to culturally significant sites. This work is more important than ever.

Contributions to Confluence are tax deductible. To enjoy that benefit on this year's returns, donate before December 31st! Thank you!
