Please help us celebrate our Fortieth Anniversary Year and Make a Difference!
Despite the many challenges our country and world are facing, we're energized and excited to work together to achieve our vision of a healthy, just, equitable, thriving, kind and peaceful world that works for everyone, fulfills our fundamental needs and realizes our greatest dreams of sustainability.
We hope you’ll join with us in making this a reality with your donation, which will be matched up to $1,000 by donors who want to expand our impact. We've earned a GuideStar Gold Seal of Transparency.
We're called to be our highest, most evolved selves and to join together to bring about fundamental change. Our children and those who are struggling to survive are counting on us. We and our diverse, committed college students from across the country feel Dr. Martin Luther King’s fierce urgency of now and are dedicated to fulfilling his dream.
Some may say it’s an impossible dream. That’s what many said forty years ago when visionary leaders from around the world founded the Alliance with a mission to bring about sustainability on a personal, organizational and planetary level.
But over four decades we’ve proven that together we can make a huge difference. Many of our greatest dreams have been fulfilled, starting with the adoption of our definition of sustainability – one of the first: ecologically sound, economically viable, socially just and humane, embodying our highest values in terms of how we treat people, animals and the planet.
Since then, we’ve successfully developed and implemented a range of impactful programs and policies:
In response to the ongoing, horrific murders of George Floyd and other people of color, the climate crisis, the global pandemic and the anti-democracy movement, the Alliance re-evaluated our work in 2020. We developed our innovative Campaign for Sustainability, Health, Equity and Kindness (S.H.E. Kindness). Its purpose is to bring about fundamental systems change through personal and organizational transformation and impactful public policies.
Our strategy is to support and amplify the work of aligned groups in order to build a diverse, inclusive alliance of more than one million people and organizations working together to shift systems in three critical institutions: education, business and government. We developed three programs building upon our past work:
We’re prepared to dramatically increase and scale our impact for our next forty. We are inspired by our energetic, diverse college students as they help lead all aspects of our work. They give us hope that together we can bring fundamental change.
We welcome your support for the Alliance and our Campaign. You’ll receive our informative and inspiring weekly E-newsletter and be able to Take Action on key issues, while also getting college student perspectives on a range of topics in their articles.
