Friends of ELI

Our Friends of ELI are important to us. Our 'Friends' show their support by making a tax-deductible contribution of $25 or more to ELI.

The generosity of our Leadership CouncilStewart L. and Morris K. Udall Society members, David Sive Society members and Friends of ELI members, along with EarthShare donors enables the Environmental Law Institute to provide the leadership needed to advance environmental protection through law, policy and management.

Each Friend of ELI receives periodic updates on the activities their donations help fund as we work to turn our vision of a healthy environment, prosperous economies, and vibrant communities founded on the rule law, into reality.

We rely on contributions from donors like you to make the hard work ELI does successful.
