For the past quarter century, a small, dedicated group of individuals have been providing an easy and effective way for both employees and employers to make a difference in their environment. EarthShare is a national non-profit that engages individuals in environmental philanthropy through donations, volunteer efforts, and education. In the past 25 years they have successfully raised over 300 million dollars that have gone into funding national and state level sustainability efforts. EarthShare has specialized in helping professionals give to their charitable programs directly from the office, and now, through their partnership with Donate A Car they are enabling individuals to help create a better world from home. The car you donate will help provide the funds necessary to help clean the air, water, land, and wildlife in your area.

Environmental Protection Partners

EarthShare believes that every dollar donated is a trust that they are given. For that reason, they have very strict criteria that their donor programs must meet. They want their efforts and donor funds to do the most good. Some of their partners include:

  • The Jane Goodall Institute for Wildlife Research, Education, and Conservation
  • National Parks Conservation Association
  • Rocky Mountain Institute
  • World Wildlife Foundation
  • Arbor Day Foundation
  • National Fish and Wildlife Foundation

And many others.

Making Philanthropy Easy

EarthShare has made philanthropic giving as easy as a small, automatic donation from an employee’s paycheck, and as fun as volunteer events where co-workers can work together for the environment. They also offer a range of educational programs and information to help both employees and employers make more conservation friendly choices both at work and at home. These programs help not only the individuals who participate and the programs being funded, but they also help the companies who participate in them by showing their support for environmental issues and their willingness to stand up and make a difference.

What’s at Stake

As our world progresses, as technology makes our daily chores easier and the world smaller and more accessible to everyone on the planet, we must be continually looking at ways to ensure our advancements don’t deplete our inheritance of a beautiful world. Our obligation to protect the beauty and integrity of our environmental resources, and finding healthy balance between growth and sustainable practices is an ongoing effort. It requires the input of all of us. Our combined efforts have the power to elicit real change and betterment.

Your donation will go to help rebuild habitats, clean waterways, and educate individuals on how they can “pay it forward” for the environment.
