Yes, your contribution matters. A lot.
It is people and businesses who believe in conservation that make it happen - people and businesses who find themselves nodding their heads in agreement when they read about the Seventh Generation Institute's "New School" approach.
If conservation and sustainability are your values, then help us build that vibrant future for nature and people. Help conserve and restore the natural resources and healthy ecosystems of the western US and beyond (sometimes very far beyond) through a contribution to Seventh Generation Institute. Natural resources and healthy ecosystems are the keys to maintaining "resource-full" communities, now and for future generations.
Support from real people and businesses provides the financial foundation for Seventh Generation Institute. Yes, we secure public funds and grants, but these funds have become much less plentiful in recent years, and are not a steady source of funds - not a good way to run a steady organization.
All contributions are appreciated, no matter the size.

How is my contribution used? So many ways...
Travel expenses. Seems like our staff are constantly on the go. This category covers the cost of staff trips to 1) visit, meet with landowners and assess sites for potential beaver reintroduction; 2) trapping and relocation; 3) construction of flow devices; 4) show the film Rethinking Beaver: old nuisance or partner?"; 5) deliver workshops on beaver impact management; 6) identify, set up logistics and partners for projects for the International Program and for the Outsider Corps; 7) travel to and from the Pecos Wildnerness for pika and climate monitoring ... and more.
Office and field equipment and supplies and software. In 2019, the Institute is seeking funds to purchase biocontrol agents for the Nurture the Natives project, update photo and video editing software, purchase one new computer.
Utilities, internet service, website hosting, printing, mailing and shipping costs.
Insurance. This is a big one for organizations that do field work. Depending on the year's specific projects, insurance costs can run between $1-5000.
