About Missouri River Relief

Missouri River Relief is a small but mighty 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to connecting people to the Missouri River through hands-on, on-the-river stewardship, education programs, and recreation events. Since 2001, we have been growing and deepening our impact throughout the Missouri River Valley from St. Louis to Omaha, NE. We currently have nine full-time and one part-time staff.

We are known for hosting large, efficient, impactful river cleanup events with hundreds of volunteers. Our experiential education programs have served over 35,000 students and teachers since 2001, bringing many of those students to the river for the first time. Our recreation programs, including river excursions, floats, and races, continue to grow in participation and diversity and in 2020, we added the MR340 paddling race to our family of recreation events.

Because of Missouri River Relief’s exceptional programs, there is a growing demand for our on-the-river experiences. With our continued growth of Race to the Dome and the MR340 comes the need for a race coordinator capable of performing administrative and programmatic functions, program marketing, program facilitation, and volunteer management.
