Nature and Culture International Needs Your
Time is running out
to save some of the most spectacular places
on the planet
Your donations are crucial to save our planet.
Please help us save some of the last remaining tropical forest ecosystems.
These forests, together with their huge biodiversity, are being
destroyed at an alarming rate – and time is running out! You
can help us by donating
now to save acres at a remarkably low price.
One dollar from you is worth more than 10
dollars to us!
you contribute a dollar to Nature and Culture International, it
goes a long way. Since we buy land at local prices and work with
in-country groups, a dollar donated grows in value to as much as
10 dollars or more compared to its effect in the US. Here's how:
NCI spends over 90% of its budget within project
countries and keeps its expenses in the United States to a minimum.
Your dollar immediately expands to five dollars, simply because
costs of operations in South America are one-fifth what they would
be in the United States.
Also, once we establish a program in a country,
we are able to attract grants from governments and other organizations
totaling several dollars for every one dollar of unrestricted funding.
The one dollar you give NCI quickly jumps in value to 10 dollars!
That one dollar from you then grows even more
valuable, because we empower local people to take charge of their
own destiny. They know best how to set priorities. The staff of
NCI comes from the region, and they are able to work closely with
local organizations and governments. And they are much more efficient
than we ever could be sitting in Washington D.C. or California.
How much more? Perhaps twice. Perhaps 10 times.
Perhaps 100 times. Read our current news and decide for yourself.
Finally, if your contribution is unrestricted
(that is, not tied to any specific NCI project) it will go directly
into NCI's core activities, enabling us to start offices in new
uncovered areas, and innovative new programs, such as conservation
of the dry forest of the Upper Maranon Valley in Peru, or the lush
cloud forest of the Nangaritza Valley in Ecuador -- both expansions
initiated in 2008.
How much is this worth? You decide.
