Donate from Overseas
We encourage you to make a donation to our school.
Big or small, every bit helps us in our important work.
Half of ARI’s yearly revenue depends on general donations. Individuals, groups, and the organizations who give ensure that our education programs continue to impact lives and change the world for better. They sustain our efforts to fulfill our mission: to build an environmentally healthy, just and peaceful world.
Official supporters receive our newsletters, are invited to special events and can visit ARI at discounted fees.
