Donate to ARI

We invite you to become part of our mission: to build an environmentally healthy, just and peaceful world.

ARI does not receive government funding. Half of our yearly revenue depends on general donations to ARI itself.

Every donation, big or small, helps us to continue our programs, impacting lives and changing the world for the better one step after another.

Would you like to join in helping us to take the next step?
