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, and recreation. Since 2001, we have been growing and deepening our impact throughout the Missouri River Valley from St. Louis to Omaha, NE. We currently have six full-time and two part-time staff.

We are known for hosting large, efficient, and impactful river clean-up events with hundreds of volunteers. Our experiential education programs 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 comes the need for a grant writer capable of writing and reporting on large, complex grants that support the organization and its programs.
