Sustaining Donor Campaign

Our goal is 150 donors by winter solstice.

Annual giving and monthly contributions allow nonprofits to build a budget. Your individual donation permits a research institute like ours to protect our mission and vision. We are not reliant on large donors or grant resources not in alignment with our purpose. Our work is funded by local people. Your contribution allows us to hand-pick grants to benefit local people in sustainable ways based on participatory evaluation. Baseline indicators of community well-being and ecosystem stewardship are critical to this evaluation.

Mission Statement

Economics for Peace Institute, a nonprofit, works globally through education, research and economic development to build peace, foster sustainability, and restore the Earth’s natural systems. The Institute’s work is measured by local people for its social benefits, its economic fairness and its ability to preserve ecosystems for future generations.

Act now to protect our biosphere through local research!

The top two areas are already seriously impacted by climate change. Shorelines are eroding and glaciers are melting. The madrone has fallen into the strait and the Hoh glacier is in retreat. Who has a more recent closeup?

Social fieldwork can offer more traction than citizen science alone. Local people are empowered to tackle the source of the problem rather than documenting the demise.

Your donation funds development of social fieldwork education.


Win a fine photograph by photopoet.earth or an earthball. Both reflect your appreciation of our beautiful natural world and encourage conversation about what matters most with those around you!

You are automatically entered when you donate. Giveaway drawing to be held when we reach 150 donors. First we draw for the photograph and then for one of ten earthballs. One item per donor.

Earthballs are 16″ beachballs.

If you would like to spread the word, we can offer you an earthball for every 3 donors you encourage to pledge, at minimum $120 annual level – a commitment of $10 per month. Yes – you count. Yourself and two others counts! When you are ready to claim your prize, click button below to create a profile on Philantro – our online donation tool.
