There are so many ways you can amplify GEC’s work and become part of the movement! Follow and share on social media, attend or host a fundraiser, or become a volunteer. You can make a difference and we welcome you to join us!

Impact Allies

Our Impact Allies are friends deeply committed to the mission and work of GEC. Through multi-year and unrestricted giving, GEC is empowered to strategically make impact-creating investments —be it infrastructure, program, or internal capacity. Each category of Impact Allies is named for a tree that is critical to the Tanzanian ecosystem — just like your support. To become an Impact Ally, please contact Anne Wadsworth at anne@gec.ngo or call (716) 725-8869.
