national organizations

 

Environmental Defense Fund

Environmental Defense Fund supports clean air and water. Abundant fish and wildlife. A stable climate. Their work protects nature and helps people thrive.

What sets the EDF apart is how they make this happen: By creating solutions that also carry economic benefits.

Union of Concerned Scientists

UCS was founded in 1969 by scientists and students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. That year, the Vietnam War was at its height and Cleveland’s heavily polluted Cuyahoga River had caught fire. Appalled at how the U.S. government was misusing science, the UCS founders drafted a statement calling for scientific research to be directed away from military technologies and toward solving pressing environmental and social problems.
We remain true to that founding vision. Throughout our history, UCS has followed the example set by the scientific community: we share information, seek the truth, and let our findings guide our conclusions.

 

The Nature Conservancy

Every acre The Nature Conservancy protects, every river mile restored, every species brought back from the brink, begins with you. Your support will help make a lasting difference around the world in 69 countries.

The Trust for Public Land

The Trust for Public Land don't just save land—they save land for people to enjoy, from neighborhood parks to national parks.

Their mission is to create parks and protect land for people, ensuring healthy, livable communities for generations to come. Every park, playground, and public space they create is an open invitation to explore, wonder, discover, and play. They have been connecting communities to the outdoors—and to each other—since 1972.
