EarthShare Washington's 2015 Annual Report

Our annual report is now available at the bottom of this article for 2015. Thank you to all of our supporters for a great year.

We believe it is important to move people from awareness to action, so we provide ways to learn and contribute. We convene forums to share best practices, offer speaking engagements on a range of environmental topics, and outreach to the public through the Earth Day Challenge.    While we believe that traditional workplace giving is an important part of our business model, the Earth Day Challenge (www.earthdaychallenge.org) broadens our reach into more companies, more organizations such as colleges, schools, clubs and more community groups. There is no other program like this that supports the environmental community.
