Investing Your Green in Green

East Bay Monthly

The fight against climate change includes divesting and investing... Local environmental organizations are making it easier for supporters to fight climate change at home, nationally, and globally during their lifetimes, as well as leaving legacies to continue the work. At San Francisco Baykeeper, Executive Director Sejal Choksi-Chugh said the group is "seeing a shift in philanthropy." Not only can outright gifts benefit the organization's ongoing communication, education, science and outreach programs, but "life income gifts" can be structured to provide investment benefits back to the donor during their lifetime.
