The recent increase in demand for balsa wood has led to uncontrolled harvesting in the Ecuadorian Amazon that is threatening the ecosystem. To mitigate this high demand, Pachamama Alliance’s sister organization in Ecuador, Fundación Pachamama, is now working with the Achuar and other Indigenous groups as well as with academics and scientists to develop a sustainable management plan for balsa wood production in the Sacred Headwaters region.
Donate to Pachamama Alliance to support a sustainable management plan for balsa wood and the self-determination of Indigenous communities in the Sacred Headwaters region.
Our mission is to empower Indigenous people of the Amazon rainforest to preserve their lands and culture and, using insights gained from that work, to educate and inspire individuals everywhere to bring forth a thriving, just and sustainable world.
We are committed to managing all contributions to Pachamama Alliance with the highest level of financial integrity and keeping you informed about how your resources are used.
Nearly 90% of our funding comes from committed individuals like you who choose to use their financial resources as an expression of their highest values and hopes for the world. In addition to making a one-time donation, we invite you to consider becoming a Global Citizen Monthly Donor by committing to a monthly contribution.
Or, you can join one of our special Multi-Year Giving Programs to provide long-term support. A Vision Keeper commits to an annual gift of $1,000 to $4,999 per year for five years, while a Stewardship Circle member invests $5,000 or more per year for five years.
We also have Corporate Giving options available.
