Why is monthly giving the best option?
Monthly giving is the best option for both Greenpeace and our supporters. It allows us to have a dependable base of support and save time, banking fees and paper by not having to send supporters reminders and renewal notices. It also provides predictable funding that allows us to plan and budget for our campaigns more effectively. For our supporters it allows you to make a small monthly contribution and still play a major role in protecting the environment.

How is my donation used?

Will I receive a tax receipt for my gift?
Greenpeace, Inc. is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. Because of our effective work for new environmental laws and policies, contributions to Greenpeace are not tax-deductible.

Greenpeace is represented by two separate entities in the United States, Greenpeace, Inc. and Greenpeace Fund, Inc. While both organizations work on the same mission, they do so through different strategies. Greenpeace, Inc. is a campaigning and lobbying organization and is registered as a 501(c)(4) entity. Contributions to Greenpeace, Inc. are not tax deductible.

Greenpeace Fund, Inc. is a grant making organization that provides funding for Greenpeace's research, charitable and public education activities entities worldwide. Greenpeace Fund is registered as a 501(c)(3) entity and has limits on its ability to lobby.

You may change the entity you support at any time by call our Supporter Care at 1-800-326-0959, Mon-Fri, 9:30am-5pm ET. You can also e-mail us at info@wdc.greenpeace.org.

I’ve renewed my membership but keep getting renewal reminders?
We appreciate your support and do not wish to trouble you with renewal requests. Greenpeace memberships run on a calendar year starting in January and running until December. This keeps our renewal mailings cost efficient. All renewals are due in January of the current year. We apologize if you have already renewed this year but are receiving notices, our renewal files are organized well in advance of their mailing. You should not receive future renewal solicitations this year. If you continue to receive renewal notices please call us at 1-800-326-0959, Mon-Fri, 9:30am-5pm ET or e-mail us at info@wdc.greenpeace.org as you may have a duplicate account.

The best way to reduce the number of renewal requests you receive is to respond early in the year or to consider becoming a monthly donor.

I’m not a Greenpeace supporter but I’m receiving mail from you, how can I remove my address?
If you’ve received mail from us and you are not a Greenpeace supporter we may have received your name in a list exchange with another like-minded organization. We recommend you contact organizations that you have supported in the past and request they not exchange your information. Alternatively you can contact the Direct Mail Association and be added to the National Do Not Mail List at www.dmachoice.org. If these steps do not address your issue, please call our Supporter Care at 1-800-326-0959, Mon-Fri, 9:30am-5pm ET.
