Why Conserve Now?

Our vision is leaving a healthy and protected Earth for future generations to celebrate and enjoy.

Public Accountability

Conserve Now partners with national nonprofits that can meet or exceed a standard of excellence for public accountability. Each charity that partners with us submits its program and financial documents for annual review and certification.

More than $38 million raised for conservation causes

A Proven Performer

Since 1995, Conserve Now has helped national conservation nonprofits expand their reach and engage with individuals like you. The donations help ensure a vibrant and healthy Earth. Formerly known as Conservation & Preservation Charities of America, donations have been used to address climate change, ensure sustainable land usage, educate future generations of environmental stewards, and protect America’s cultural and natural heritage.

We use contributions wisely, in accordance with our mission of conservation and in ways that honor donors’ wishes.

Serving Large and Small Nonprofits

Although all our nonprofit partners must have programs or services in at least 15 states or internationally, many of our partners are not household names. We are proud to work with nonprofits of any size and aim to provide a place where individuals can learn about the good work of lesser known organizations.

Our Financials

Conserve Now is committed to meeting the highest standards of public accountability and fiscal responsibility.
