The River Watch Fund is sponsored by approximately 25 individuals who are present or former friends and colleagues of Geoff Dates.

The Monitoring Fund is administered by River Network. All grant decisions for the Monitoring Fund are made under the directions of an Advisory Board comprised of major donors to the fund. That Advisory Board operates under the direction of River Network.

The Dates Fund is privately administered by the Advisory Board. Geoff Dates has immediate access to any and all monies in that fund to cover essential daily living and medical costs.
