Ways to Give

When you donate, you directly support our mission to protect, preserve, and restore Washington’s waters through advocacy, policy reform, public interest litigation, and education. Combining these tactics, we work to ensure the equitable and sustainable management of our most precious resource: water. Our vision for the future is that Washington State will have clean and abundant waters to support healthy communities, thriving ecosystems, and climate resilience. Thank you for helping us make this vision a reality.

Members Are Critical to Our Mission

‘Unrestricted funds’, such as those we receive from membership dues as opposed to grants, are critical to CELP’s day to day operations. CELP often has to make important decisions—quickly—in order to best protect our waters. Your membership enables CELP to act decisively to do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done. Furthermore, when CELP works with politicians, government agencies, businesses, and special interest groups on water issues in Washington, we speak on behalf of our members. The more members we have, the more impactful our message.

Membership Benefits

As a CELP member, you will be eligible to attend our Continuing Legal Education programs at a discounted rate. You will also receive our monthly newsletter, Washington Water Watch and a CELP sticker that you can proudly display!

Planned Gifts

Bequests – You may make a donation to Center for Environmental Law & Policy (CELP) through your will or living trust. Your options include but are not limited to, naming CELP as the recipient of a stated sum, or contingent bequest, or as the residuary beneficiary of your estate. CELP recommends that you consult with an estate lawyer who can explain these and other options for making bequest gifts.

Retirement Plans – You can also name Center for Environmental Law & Policy (CELP) as the beneficiary of your IRA, SEP-IRA, 401(k), 403(b) or other retirement plan assets, which can have significant estate tax advantages. It is as easy as notifying your plan administrator of your wishes. For a retirement plan that is self-administered, you should notify the custodian in writing and keep a copy of the notification with your will. Sometimes special rules and limitations apply to qualified plans and similar interests.

You Shop. Amazon Gives.

When you shop through Amazon Smile and select CELP, 0.5% of all eligible purchases will be donated to CELP.
