Rainforest Partnership
April 12, 2010

As an intern for the past 3 months, I have learned the inner workings of the nonprofit sector. Rainforest Partnership does incredible work to both save the rainforests and create economic alternatives for the people living there. I believe in the model and the people who have been working to see its implementation. As the fundraising within the organization grows, the successes of RP will become more frequent. We are a very lean organization with approximately 90% of all funds raised going directly to projects. The hope is to both grow the model and our reach while also growing the RP staff and team members.
