In 2020 the rainforest trust will double every donation made courtesy of a friend of the trust with a generous pocket. So if we protect an area the size of the city of London, it will mean twice that area of Land is protected!
“Rainforest Trust SAVES Challenge, which aims to protect 50 million acres of threatened habitat by 2020. Through this challenge, all donations to specific projects and the Conservation Fund will be doubled by a generous friend of Rainforest Trust. This means each donation you make to Rainforest Trust UK will save twice as much rainforest!” (Source)
$2 per Acre??
It’s astonishingly low rate for land but the Rainforest Trust are not buying it outright in most cases. Typically the money is used to aid and implement the creation of policies and protections in places like the Amazon and Indonesia to stop deforestation. 100% of the money we sent to the Rainforest Trust will go directly to funds for vital conservation action.
Rainforest Trust holds Charity Navigator’s highest rating (4/4 stars) for its commitment to transparency, accountability and efficiency. Exceeding the standards within our field.
