Review for Ocean River Institute Inc, Cambridge, MA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Beiing introduced to Rob Moir from ocean River Institute was nothing short of a miracle. Immediately ORI took the burden off the fund raisers in the British Virgin Islands in our ongoing Court case to protect Beef Island from development. ORI stepped in to get a petition from concerned individuals, they assisted in raising funding and liasing with funders so that donations could be tax deductible. They also raised awareness of the case internationally. ORI continues to be there to give support of environmental issues facing the British Virgins. They are exactly what small NOG's need when they dont have the capacity to write for grant funding or simply the time to write for grant funding.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

really assist small NGO environmental organizations in small Caribbean islands.
