RESOURCES: Green Charities/ Non-Profits

Dispatch from SSC Intern Stephanie Castellano

Your company enjoys giving back to the community, but how can sustainability also fit into that yearly contribution? There are many non-profit organizations you can support to help further sustainable and environmentally friendly programs. Wondering if you are donating to a worthy organization?

Their grading system is based on several factors, including how much of your dollar actually goes to charitable purposes, and how efficiently the organization fundraises. While it is not meant to be a comprehensive guide as to what organizations you should support, this “watch dog” organization can give you an idea of where to look. Below are some “grade A” environmental non-profits and charities:
