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:

"I am well versed in customer care and attention to detail. I make it my hobby to quietly observe all the finite things wherever I go. Your staff, your poise with somewhat difficult customers and your care to provide a first rate experience receives top billing from me. I will share the experience with friends and most importantly, when I come rafting again it will be with Magic Falls.

"It was my wife's 50th birthday and she wanted to celebrate in a special way. The trip we had was indeed special. What made it special was the way the employees and river guides catered to our group. She couldn't have celebrated her 50th any better."
Sal C., Needham Heights, MA

"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."
