Donate to our legal defense fund.  ALL donations go directly to help defray expenses in defending our water rights.  Funds are needed now to assist in bringing our expert witnesses to testify before the Office of the State Engineer and at subsequent legal proceedings.


The Southwest Research and Information Center has generously consented to administer our donations and insure that the funds are used for research and expert testimony in coordination with the New Mexico Environmental Law Center's legal defense.

When you click the "DONATE" button below, you will be re-directed to the SRIC website.  At the right side of the screen, click on the blue and white button that says "Donate Now Through Network For Good."  

On the donation form, first fill in the amount at the top left.  Under "Designation" please type in AUGUSTIN PLAINS. You will be asked to create a login, and then will be able to donate using either your credit card or PayPal account. 


It’s your water...but it won’t be yours forever unless you act to protect it. Send a letter, email and/or Facebook post to everyone you know who might have an interest, asking for small donations.  Remember to provide directions for how they can contribute.  Every bit helps, and it all adds up. Can you help us put a letter together, stuff envelopes and address them to friends, relatives, and strangers?  Many hands make light work! Can you help with researching grant opportunities, or writing grant proposals? You may know more than we do about fundraising possibilities - what other ideas do you

have, or how else can you help?  Please let us know!
