Support the Children’s Eternal Rainforest with your donation to one of the following priority areas:
- Endowment fund. We’re committed to investing the money in this fund, and only using the interest that it generates each year to support the BEN. For example, if you donate $20 today, it will generate about $1 each year from now on. In other words, it will be an eternal gift!
- Land purchase and protection. We use funds in this category as follows: 50% for land purchases, 40% for protection (salaries, legal costs, vehicles, etc.), and 10% for our endowment fund.
- Environmental education. With our full-time educator, in schools in rural communities on the Caribbean edge of the BEN.
- Research. The BEN is one of the world’s ultimate natural laboratories, and yet it is virtually unstudied. Donations to this fund will help change that.
- General. For us to use wherever we need it most.
