Greenpeace exists because this fragile earth deserves a voice. It needs solutions. It needs change. It needs action. Together, we can stop environmental destruction, hold companies and governments to account, and build a sustainable future.
We model courage, we champion courage, we share stories of courageous acts by our supporters and allies. We invite people to take courageous action with us, in their daily lives and with others who share our commitment to a better world.
By starting or supporting a #BECAUSE fundraiser, you can join us in protecting our oceans, forests and climate, and empowering other to join you.
Where the money goes
Every #BECAUSE fundraiser donation will have an impact because Greenpeace is 100% independent and targets the root causes of environmental threats. We do not accept money from governments, corporations or political parties. Individual contributions are Greenpeace’s main source of funding.
Your donations pay for
Investigating environmental problems and their root causes. From the North Pole to the very bottom of the oceans, we use state-of-the-art scientific equipment, our very own Science Lab and draw on world-leading experts to investigate the source of — and solutions to — some of the world’s most pressing environmental issues.
Exposing the policies, practices and actors responsible for environmental destruction — and highlighting solutions.
Documenting environmental destruction as it happens — from chasing down illegal fishing vessels to capturing and sharing footage of forest destruction. We often go where others can’t to bear witness and shine a spotlight in places where ecosystems are under threat.
Acting to empower citizens to make their voices heard. From marches and rallies, to banner drops and blockades, we take creative action to ensure our vital messages cannot be ignored.
Lobbying to bring your voices to the halls of power. We meet with key decision-makers in government and company headquarters and call on them to make the changes our planet so desperately needs.
Greenpeace’s work focuses on three key areas:
We not only challenge destructive fossil fuel producing industries and big polluters, but actively support renewable energy solutions.
A healthy environment is essential to a green and peaceful world. We help protect nature in all its biodiversity.
Let’s define ourselves by what we contribute, not what we consume. We work to change habits of unsustainable consumption and production to ensure we live within our planet’s limits.
