Save the Environment Fund

Donation protected
It’s up to each and every one of us to protect the world in which we live, and to preserve its beauty for generations to come. With thousands of years of pollution, deforestation, overfishing, drilling, and more, we’ve put an incredible strain on the environment and now, the planet needs our help. 

Together, we can reduce plastic pollution, fight climate change, protect our planet’s wildlife, and fund our collective dream of a sustainable future. Your single donation can support a range of environmental projects to reverse the damage humans have caused while laying a strong, sustainable foundation for the future. Will you join our cause?

Who benefits from your donation?
When you make a donation to the Save the Environment Fund, you support urgent needs, as well as broader, pervasive issues tied to the environment.

The Save the Environment Fund is a part of the Environment Cause, which gives you the ability to help both individuals who have started GoFundMe® fundraisers to benefit the planet, as well as organizations championing environmental causes. A single donation supports both community-based and national efforts to protect the environment. 

You can rest assured knowing that we verify every fundraiser to which we give, ensuring that your donation supports various environmental initiatives. Additionally, we will send you regular updates about the individuals and organizations you’ve helped.
