Rainforest Trust has Charity Navigator’s coveted 4-STAR RATING for being one of the most efficient conservation nonprofits in the US.
Over 97% of our budget is spent on direct conservation action–an efficiency few conservation organizations in the US can match.
At Rainforest Trust, we feel the most effective conservation strategy is continuing to do what we have always done best: buying and protecting rainforests forever.
We pride ourselves on our 23-year commitment to low overhead and high effectiveness. We are a small staff of conservationists and project coordinators committed to saving biodiversity, one rainforest at a time.
Our method is simple: we buy land to protect it–saving more of our planet’s biological riches for future generations. Our highly experienced and dedicated staff and board, combined with the on-the-ground expertise of our partners, ensures that we are accomplishing as much as we can and address the most urgent priorities, all for the best possible price.
With your help we have already protected over 2 million acres of critical lands for biodiversity conservation–at a fraction of the cost of other NGOs.
Because we are so efficient, your contribution to Rainforest Trust has an even greater impact.
