Since 1971, the Environmental Action Committee of West Marin (EAC) has played an essential role in protecting the wild and rural character of West Marin and beyond. As an environmental nonprofit, in an unincorporated community, that also functions as a gateway community to a national seashore, two state parks, county open space and agricultural lands, the EAC is the only region-wide environmental watchdog and advocacy group providing a voice on county, state, and federal policy and/or permit decisions effecting our wild lands, wildlife, watersheds and rural character. But we can’t do it alone!

Planned Giving: Leaving A Bequest: You can make a lasting contribution to the preservation of West Marin by including EAC in your estate planning. There are several ways to leave a gift. Many people leave a charitable gift in a will or living trust. You can set aside a specific dollar amount or leave a percentage of your estate or any assets left over after the family has been provided for. Another option is to name EAC as the beneficiary or contingent beneficiary of life insurance policies, funds from a savings or retirement account, or appreciated assets. You can also designate to a gift to The West Marin Environmental Action Fund at the Marin Community Foundation. The fund supports EAC’s work to protect West Marin and is able to accept cash, securities, bequests, retirement plan assets and life insurance.
Volunteer: We are always in need of event and office volunteers to help us accomplish our mission. Positions are varied from beach and roadside clean ups, to special events, office work and internships with our Marin MPA Watch program. If you have specialized skills in fundraising, graphic design or IT, consider a pro bono gift.
