Donations to Rainforest Trust are not symbolic. Thanks to the support of our board members who cover the majority of our operating expenses, Rainforest Trust is able to allocate 100% of your donation to the Conservation Action Fund or a specific project directly to conservation action.
Each project donation protects real rainforest acres and saves endangered species. We focus on tangible results. Your contribution does not support lobbying, political activities, or special interests.
Rainforest Trust respects and maintains donor intent for restriction and allocation of received gifts. If we receive a gift for a conservation project that has reached its fundraising goal, we will contact the donor and suggest similar projects, based on geographical location and species protected, or the Conservation Action Fund which supports all our urgent conservation projects.
For monthly gifts, if the conservation project you have chosen to support becomes funded, your gift will be applied to the Conservation Action Fund. It is Rainforest Trust’s policy to let donors know when a project reaches its fundraising goal if their monthly or other recurring gift is allocated to that specific project, and that it will now support the Conservation Action Fund unless the donor chooses another specific project to direct their future gifts to.
