One of the best ways to support the Earth Institute is with a gift to the Earth Institute Fund. Your gift immediately benefits research, educational programs and on-the-ground work, so vital to our mission. We put your gift to work right away so that we can advance the ideas and innovations that hold the most potential for addressing the challenges of sustainable development. View the areas to support page for descriptions of other projects and initiatives that you can support.
Approximately 45 percent of our private donations come individuals, in gifts of all sizes. Every gift makes a difference – donate now or read below for instructions to make gifts by check, credit card or wire transfer.
Making gifts of appreciated stocks and bonds can be a simple and convenient way to donate; and if you are considering a donation of $1,000 or more, there are many tax advantages to giving securities.

With a little planning, your gift to the University can help achieve your financial, philanthropic and estate-planning goals.
Planned gifts give back, allowing you to take sizeable income, capital gains and estate deductions on your taxes. They can provide income for you and your family for life. And planned gifts can be much larger than other gifts, so you can leave a legacy that fits your philanthropic goals.
