Your ongoing partnership with EAC is tremendously important to West Marin. EAC is the only region-wide environmental watchdog in West Marin with an office and staff. In the absence of local government in our unincorporated area, EAC plays an essential role in ensuring that county, state, and federal governments hear our environmental voice about policy and permit decisions.
Becoming an EAC member is easy!
Make a 100% tax-deductible donation to EAC online or by mailing a check. Suggested membership donations are $40 individual or $75 household. As a grassroots environmental advocacy organization, we are reliant upon the support of our members.

Other Ways to Support EAC’s Environmental Work:
Volunteer/Intern with EAC: Contact our office at admin [at] eacmarin.org or call us at 415-663-9312 to sign up as a volunteer or inquire about our spring and summer internship programs for high school and college students.
Sustaining Membership: Becoming a sustaining member is a great way to support EAC all year long! Sustaining members agree to regular monthly payments of at least $10 or more per month. Sustaining memberships provide the financial backbone for EAC’s work by ensuring regular income that gives us more time to engage in important work rather than fundraising.
Gift Memberships: Give a gift membership to a friend for a birthday or special occasion. Mail a check or donate online and include the name of the person the membership is for.
Donations in memory: Honor a friend or loved one by making a donation to EAC in his or her memory. EAC will send a letter to you and the person you designate to inform them of your memorial gift.
Legacies & Bequests: 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.
Gifts of stock, mutual funds, or other appreciated assets: A gift of stock, mutual funds, real estate or other appreciated assets can be an advantageous way to give. For example, you can donate a gift of stock without having to convert it to cash first, thus avoiding capital gains tax.
Matching Gifts: Many businesses offer to match the gifts workers make to nonprofit groups. If your employer matches gifts, you can double your support for West Marin. Please ask your personnel or community relations office for more information and matching gift forms.
Give to EAC’s fund at the Marin Community Foundation. The West Marin Environmental Action Fund is a Designated Beneficiary 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. For more information, contact EAC.
Contact our Development Department with any questions about giving.
