Today’s environmental challenges are complex and global in nature. They call for visionary and ambitious action grounded in sound science and objective analysis - the kind of action that has distinguished WRI’s record of effectiveness for over 25 years. Your gift to WRI will support this work.
We value each dollar invested in WRI and hold ourselves accountable for delivering results. You can support our global environmental work through a number of giving options:
Become a Partner in our Work: Support WRI with a tax-deductible contribution.
Become a Sustaining Partner: Make a recurring gift to WRI, for however long you wish. Each January WRI will send a tax receipt confirming your total contributions made during the previous calendar year.
Matching Gifts: Many companies match gifts made by employees to non-profit organizations. Increase the impact of your gift by asking your employer to match your contributions to WRI. WRI’s Tax ID# is 52-1257057.
Designate CFC #96456: If you are a federal government or military employee, a great way to support our work is by designating WRI (CFC #96456) during the Combined Federal Campaign.
Invest in the Global Impact Fund: At the $1,000 to $10,000 level, you can invest in scaling up WRI’s critical initiatives, help to green the economies of key emerging countries, and finance innovative, cutting-edge solutions. For more information, visit the Global Impact Fund page or contact Rich Barnett.

Gifts of Stock, Bonds and Mutual Funds
When you donate securities held longer than one year, you avoid paying capital gains taxes and receive a charitable deduction for the full market value of the stock. Additionally, gifts of appreciated assets are deductible up to 30% of your adjusted gross income, and any excess may be carried over for use in future tax years.
Gifts of securities such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds may be made electronically by completing a Securities Transfer Form, or by instructing your broker to send the securities via Depository Trust Company (DTC) to:
