Supporting RFF's Center for the Management of Ecological Wealth
Are You Up for the Challenge?
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.
