Supporting RFF's Center for the Management of Ecological Wealth

Are You Up for the Challenge?

What is ecological wealth and
why is it important?

CMEW Director Jim Boyd explains.

This year, RFF supporters have a special opportunity to double their impact when giving to RFF’s Center for the Management of Ecological Wealth (CMEW). For donations made through September 2014, RFF will receive matching funds—up to $125,000—toward the challenge grant.

That means your gift will go twice as far in advancing CMEW’s efforts to develop innovative, cost-effective solutions to environmental management issues. Some of CMEW's newest initiatives include the following:

  • Identifying cost-effective ways for communities to build resilience in the face of a changing climate and extreme weather.
  • Developing approaches for achieving species protection and biodiversity goals, while creating economic incentives for land owners.
  • Creating new tools for identifying and investing in conservation efforts, with a focus on maximizing return on investment.

Every contribution will be matched dollar-for-dollar, and all donations qualify as 2014 tax deductions. Help RFF meet this challenge today.

Learn about more ways to support RFF.

or mail in your contribution.

Remember to designate your gift for CMEW to earn the match.

Highlights from CMEW

Maximizing Benefits of Conservation Investments
In this webinar, CMEW Director James Boyd describes new frameworks for assessing how to get a return on conservation spending—“conservation ROI”—and how to better understand humankind’s limits to ingenuity for addressing environmental issues. Watch the webinar.

Building Resilience to Climate Change through Green Infrastructure
Many communities throughout the United States are exploring how to use strategic parcels of land—“green” infrastructure—to provide a buffer against increases in flooding. Learn more about research at CMEW on green infrastructure.

Incentives for Protecting Endangered Species
Efforts to protect species and maintain biodiversity face major challenges. Researchers at CMEW are exploring ways to improve the effectiveness of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and enhance biodiversity on a large scale.
