Frequently asked questions

Do you have questions about EDF and our work? Here are answers to the most commonly asked questions from our members and activists.

How can I become a member?

You can become a member by giving a small donation of $15 or more once a year. Our membership subscriptions expire one year from the time of your initial donation. When your membership is due for expiration we'll send you a friendly renewal reminder asking you to renew their support for EDF for another year. The renewal reminder is also an opportunity for us to communicate with our members about what our goals are for the upcoming year. We want to reignite your passion and inspire you be active, engaged, and invested in the work that we do here at EDF. We rely on the generosity of our members and it is important to us to continue our relationship with you so we can continue to find the ways that work. If a donation is not within your means, you can also become an EDF activist simply by joining our mailing list, following our work, and taking action when we send you action alerts.

Why do I receive materials both by email and regular mail?

We want to communicate with you in a way that's convenient and comfortable for your needs. Update your preferences by visiting your MyEDF profile or emailing members@edf.org.

Where/how can I change my subscriptions?

You can change your subscription options by clicking "change my subscription" link on the bottom of any of our emails. You can also change your subscription by logging into MyEDF.org. If you have any trouble updating your preferences please email members@edf.org and a representative will take care of that for you.

Does EDF work with other environmental groups?

We work in concert with other organizations—as well as with business, government and communities—and avoid duplicating work already being done effectively by others.

Where does EDF gets its money?

The vast majority of our donations come from foundation grants, individual contributions and membership. Additionally, we receive approximately 7% of our funding from investments, government and other grants, and planned giving. For more information, please visit edf.org/finances.

What is the difference between EDF and EDAF?

Environmental Defense Action Fund is affiliated with Environmental Defense Fund, but is technically a separate entity. The two groups have a separate board of directors and receive separate funding. Environmental Defense Action Fund has the same goals as Environmental Defense Fund, but it is able to pursue a strategy that advances these same environmental issues through legislative channels. As with all 501c3 organizations, all donations made to Environmental Defense Fund are tax deductible. Donations made to Environmental Defense Action Fund, however, are not tax deductible. This is in line with the IRS regulations of 501c4 organizations because the money given to our Action Fund helps us win critical environmental victories in Congress. Therefore, we cannot combine the funding for both organizations.
