Why support CI?

We put your money right to work in the places where it’s needed most — because the issues we’re tackling require urgent action.

We match your funds with contributions from governments, foundations and other donors. Every donation, no matter how small, supports planet-sized change.

We join forces with more than 2,000 partners around the world to get things done. Since we were founded, we have helped to protect more than 400 million hectares (988 million acres) of land and sea.

We use your support to find big-picture solutions to global problems. We are not looking at one sector or one issue — and we’re not interested in short-term fixes.
