Program Contribution: 80%

The Natural Resources Defense Council combines the power of more than three million members and online activists with the expertise of some 700 scientists, lawyers, and policy advocates across the globe to ensure the rights of all people to the air, the water, and the wild.

NRDC is tackling the climate crisis at its source: pollution from fossil fuels. We work to reduce our dependence on these dirty sources by expanding clean energy across cities, states, and nations. They win court cases that allow the federal government to limit carbon pollution from cars and power plants. They help implement practical clean energy solutions. And they fight oil and gas projects that would pump out even more pollution.

NRDC programs help create strong, just, and resilient communities—making cities healthier, more sustainable places to live. They work to lower energy bills, reduce flooding, improve access to healthier food, and make it cheaper and easier for everyone to get around. And when polluters threaten communities, their lawyers go to court on their behalf.

If you also want to give back to The Natural Resources Defense Council here is how you can donate to them.

Every month we’ll continue to highlight and donate to non-profit organizations that are in service to DOB’s three core principles; sustainable, inclusive, local.
