EarthShare California (ESCA) was founded by its member charities in 1982, working together to raise needed funds through workplace fundraising campaigns. The coalition broke new ground in outreach, education, and fund development strategies. ESCA quickly established itself as a leading workplace fundraising federation in the United States. The concept of an environmental coalition to raise funds in the workplace subsequently expanded to other states and regions. Today, EarthShare California represents over 80 diverse environmental groups. Since its inception, ESCA has raised more than $20 million for the environment. ESCA is today the largest local workplace solicitation organization in the country raising funds on behalf of the environment.
EarthShare California supports a nationwide network of America's leading non-profit environmental and conservation organizations, and works to promote environmental awareness and charitable giving through workplace giving campaigns. EarthShare is an opportunity for environmentally-conscious employees and workplaces to support hundreds of environmental groups through a charitable giving drive.
Our member organizations work in your neighborhood, your state, across the country and around the world to help protect and preserve our air, water, land, and wildlife.
As more and more workplaces are offering environmental giving options, EarthShare CA now participates in campaigns at hundreds of public and privates sector workplaces.
EarthShare CA's member organizations work hard every day to safeguard your health and the environment by combating global warming, protecting ancient forests, protecting our water from toxic contaminants, and saving endangered species. These efforts, and so many more, are supported by EarthShare CA's mission.
