Making a Difference with Your Support:
Thanks to the generous contributions from supporters worldwide, Rainforest Foundation US (RFUS) has significantly expanded our critical programs. These initiatives ensure essential resources are channeled directly to Indigenous communities, the true guardians of the rainforests, in the Amazon and Central America.
In the regions in which Rainforest Foundation US works—namely, Peru, Ecuador, Brazil, Guyana, and Panama—rainforests thrive in the care of Indigenous peoples and local communities. It’s why each year we are acknowledged as a ‘best environmental charity.’
Rainforests absorb and store more carbon dioxide than all other types of forests, making rainforest protection one of the most effective solutions to climate change. Support Indigenous peoples on the frontlines of rainforest protection.
