Charitable Giving

Magic Falls Rafting Co.’s owners, Dave and Donna Neddeau, believe in contributing to the health, welfare, culture and education of communities in their home state of Maine.  Since the company’s founding in 1989, the Neddeaus have contributed rafting trips for organizations' fund raising auctions and raffles.  Magic Falls hosted a free day of rafting for military and first responders and a special rafting day to support Cassidy’s Kitchen in Winslow.   The Neddeaus’ hometown honored them as the high school’s sports boosters of the year.

Beginning this season, Magic Falls launches a charitable giving program to support Maine businesses' and organizations' own designated charities. For companies, businesses and organizations booking group trips of 8 or more rafters, Magic Falls will contribute a portion of the regular per person  full river trip price to that organization’s designated charity on the following schedule:

"We had a family outing on the Kennebec, with our Guides JJ and Molly. A true experience of a lifetime, but one that will be repeated soon! From checking in and being assigned our rafting guides and a quick but thorough instruction of our "responsibilities" on the river, off to the buses and onto the Dam. Once on the river, it was a thrill of a lifetime, one made even better by our Guides, JJ and Molly (we had two rafts...) At the end of an exciting trip a wonderful barbecue awaited some hungry rafters! All the Staff of Magic Falls were exceptional and professional but most of all lots of fun which is what we went for."
David M, Maine

"I want to tell you what a great time we had with your rafting company. Everything was so well organized, so thorough, well prepared, no short cuts taken, so much fun and fully worth the price in all ways. I don't find myself saying that much these days but I say it freely regarding Magic Falls and your staff. Thank you for treating us as guests and yet friends at the same time."
Richard T, Chester County, PA
