Endow-Bio, Inc., the First National Endowment for Biodiversity
February 10, 2014 10:45 AM - Endow-Bio, Inc.
Our current crises of nature, conservation and culture call for an audaciously hopeful response in the form of this new public charity. Our mission is to further conservation of biodiversity of native species and their habitats in the U.S., to expose the full breadth of our environmental problems, to show there are good-hearted people working to solve these problems who would benefit from more support, and to provide a simple and inexpensive social mechanism to provide such support. Our essential goal is to increase public participation in conservation here in the U.S., in the broadest sense. Endow-Bio, Inc. operates wholly within the U.S. Currently, about 2% of charitable giving in the U.S. supports conservation. We think this level of funding should be much higher and we are doing something about it.
