Becoming a fiscally sponsored project is a strategic decision EFCWest made in order to increase our effectiveness, organizational durability, and greater capacity to do out work.  Earth Island leverages the power of a network of diverse projects, the invaluable knowledge and influence of renowned leaders in the environmental movement, and the track record of a 35-year old organization and experienced staff.  They are home to projects on the forefront of the environmental movement utilizing strategies that are responsive to the social, economic, and political realities of our time.
