Environmental Defense Fund

I hope you've seen Sam's emails about our special Year End Match--thousands of dedicated environmentalists have pledged to add an "extra" match to every donation EDF receives this month. Just like you, EDF's supporters are passionate about doing something about climate change NOW--before it’s too late!

Now - instead of doubling the value of your gift - the value of your year-end gift is TRIPLED. Each dollar you donate before midnight, December 31, is worth THREE!

As Sam wrote to you last week: We're making progress, but it is urgent that we do even more--and without you, we can't do any of it. You helped make every victory we've achieved possible.

Time is running out to make a difference for our planet. We must take advantage of every single day. Start today by making a gift to help us protect the planet.

Thank you for everything you do to defend our only planet,
Emily Stevenson

Dear Norma,
Three Bears

ALL Year-End Gifts are being matched $2-for-$1.

That’s right. Your year-end gift will be worth THREE TIMES as much!

Donate Today
It is all but certain that 2012 will go down as the hottest, most extreme climate year in U.S. history.

Record heat, wildfires, drought, and super-storms. This is what climate change looks like and we are in a race against time to stop climate catastrophe. We need your support now more than ever.

Norma, you can make a real difference! Your donation today will be MATCHED TWICE TRIPLING its value.

Here’s how this exciting Year-End Match offer works:
Thanks to your support last year, EDF has already helped make tremendous progress in addressing the climate crisis.
  • California is implementing the world’s most ambitious, economy-wide limits on climate pollution.
  • America’s fuel economy standards are set to double by 2025.
  • Our non-hydro renewable energy capacity has already doubled.
  • Wind energy is cost-competitive with coal.
  • Brazil has slashed its deforestation rates by 80%.
We’re making progress. But it is urgent that we do even more.

Can I count on you to help us MAXIMIZE our special TRIPLE Matching Gift Opportunity so that we have the funds to get even more aggressive with climate change in 2013?

Please don’t wait. This chance to TRIPLE the impact of your year-end gift won’t last long. And if we do not do everything in our power now before it’s too late we will have no one to blame but ourselves when climate change causes more and more devastation throughout our communities ... and our planet.

P.S. Remember, your Year-End Gift to EDF is tax-deductible. And it will be matched TWICE - making each dollar worth THREE dollars! That means your generous gift of $25, $50 or even $100 will be worth $75, $150 or even $300, if we receive it by midnight December 31, 2012. Thank you for ongoing friendship and support.
