From 1995 through 2020, we invested in more than 500 organizations across the Northwest, far more than we can list here. We are deeply grateful for the vision, passion, and hard work of each of these groups. No one does this work alone, and we thank the boards, staffs, volunteers, and supporters who made this work possible. Explore below to learn more about some of the groups we funded.
The National Caucus of Environmental Legislators was organized in 1996 for the purpose of providing environmentally progressive legislators with an opportunity to coordinate their activities with respect to national legislative organizations, and to share ideas both on affirmative and negative environmental issues. The goal of NCEL is to organize pro-environment state legislators nation-wide, and to educate and inform these leaders on state and federal environmental issues and policies—the result of which will be the enactment of sound environmental policy at the state level. NCEL does not lobby for the enactment or defeat of any state or federal legislation.
