Environmental and animal welfare organizations work diligently to preserve and protect our planet’s species and natural resources. In 2016, giving to environmental and animal organizations experienced the fastest growth out of nine subsectors at 7.2%, with a two-year growth rate of 13.5%, according to Giving USA 2017.
At R+R, we are deeply invested in both environmental and animal welfare causes. Members of our team sit on the boards of Michigan Environmental Council and Humane Society of Huron Valley, and we have deep knowledge of statewide and local issues in these areas. We’re here to help nonprofits leverage the important role philanthropy plays in meeting their missions.
Our partners range from organizations seeking to address local issues to those with a broad statewide reach. We’ve assisted these organizations with complex fundraising and organizational issues, partnering as campaign counsel, conducting comprehensive fundraising program assessments, and providing strategic counsel tailored to meet the unique needs in this sector.
With our help, MHS opened the Dresner Foundation Animal Care Campus in Detroit and raised more than $16 million—exceeding their initial goal by nearly $4 million.
