Make a gift to support EarthShare's many charities

We work with the world's most respected environmental and conservation organizations, and offer a simple way to care for our health, water, air, land and wildlife. Your one gift supports a broad range of work, ensuring your dollar has the most impact. You can give online or bequeath a gift to us in your will.

Your Personal Donation

You can also choose to give by personal check, directly to ESO. Include a letter that directs your gift or print a copy of our pledge form and complete the three easy steps.

ESO welcomes donors electing to designate their gift to "EarthShare Ohio" and/or all or a portion to one or more ESO beneficiary organizations. Gifts designated to "ESO" will be shared among all of ESO's listed beneficiaries. Click here for a PDF of the pledge form.

Once you've filled out the pledge form or written a note, please mail the notification and your check to "EarthShare Ohio, 3528 N High St, Ste E, Columbus, OH 43214-4090". If you have any questions - contact us either by e-mail or phone at 877-434-2357.

All contributions to ESO are tax deductible. You will receive a confirmation letter soon after our receipt of your gift.

Start A Workplace Giving Campaign

Your gift alone is powerful. Multiplying the power of your gift by bringing a workplace giving campaign to your employer to allow your coworkers to give as well. We have a large depth of resources and years of expertise that will help you and your employer start and run a successful campaign. Click here to get started bringing EarthShare into your workplace.

More than 70 workplaces in Ohio now partner with ESO to offer their employees an environmental choice in their annual workplace giving campaign. Ask your HR representative if you already have the option to contribute to ESO in your employer's annual charity support activities. If your workplace already formally partners with ESO, just need to fill your employer's electronic or paper pledge form when your campaign runs!

Giving Through Your United Way Campaign

If your workplace offers a United Way giving drive and your local United Way does not include EarthShare Ohio in its list of charities, find out if your employer's United Way campaign has a "write-in" or "donor choice" option. Recognizing that your choice to give is your choice - many United Ways will allow you to designate your donation to any tax-exempt charity. If yours does, write "EarthShare Ohio" in the space provided on your paper or electronic pledge form, along with our address -- "3528 N. High St., Ste. E, Columbus, OH 43214-4090." Our tax identification number is: 31-1428289
