Partners and Group Members

CalWild’s unofficial motto is “we’ll meet with anybody.” Our partners helped us designate Mojave Trails National Monument, advocate for 88% more wild and scenic river miles in the Inyo National Forest, and pass significant legislation like the Great American Outdoors Act.

Partnering with us showcases your team’s values in a tangible way, utilizing our advocacy expertise to point to real world victories in public lands policy and protections.

Our friends at 1% for the Planet are helping the business community become advocates for ecological health by encouraging participating businesses to donate 1% of their proceeds to environmental groups like CalWild every year. Check out our 1%FTP profile here. Through this unique partnership, we’ve partnered with dozens of businesses in myriad ways, including:

  • Ventura’s The Refill Shoppe chose us as their February 2022 1%FTP nonprofit partner and renewed as Group Members
  • New San Francisco-based beverage company Aura Bora pledged $20,000 and gave us 100% of their proceeds of their seasonal Chai Cranberry flavor at the end of 2021
  • Atmos Financial, which specializes in reversing global warming through fee-free banking, added CalWild to their list of beneficiaries so their customers can support us directly through their services (we also get a donation when you sign up for an account!)
