Why Partner with CBF?

CBF has a reputation as the region's most effective conservation group working to restore and protect the Chesapeake Bay and its many rivers and streams. Our unmatched credibility is grounded in scientific expertise and a demonstrated record of success.

We are educating tens of thousands of people each year and performing essential hands-on restoration, all while ensuring policies and protections are in place to build on progress.

The Bay is recovering thanks to the collective power of corporate leaders, community partners, legislative decision makers, and 200,000 CBF members, donors, and volunteers. With the support of partners like you, who appreciate the vital relationship between water quality and quality of life, we won't just save the Bay, we will keep it saved. Join us!
