EESI is thrilled to announce that GlobalGiving—a crowdfunding platform that gives donors an opportunity to support a wide variety of projects—has awarded two types of recognition to EESI: Top Ranked – Superstar status and Vetted Organization.


EESI’s project is the top-rated climate project on the GlobalGiving platform. EESI is thrilled that so many GlobalGiving users—and the crowdfunding platform itself—have recognized the value and impact of EESI’s project on GlobalGiving, “Engaging with Congress on Energy and Climate.” In the four years EESI has been on the GlobalGiving platform, GlobalGiving donors have made 738 donations to our project—almost $70,000 in total! The Vetted Organization designation shows that we perform our activities in a transparent and accountable manner, and meet requirements for registration with our local government.

GlobalGiving donors recognize the value of engaging with Congress, as did this GreatNonprofits reviewer of EESI:

EESI occupies a unique position, contributing to Congress’s work but also talking to [the] general public and other interests. Working in a somewhat similar organization, I judge their work to be excellent, and sometimes unmatched, which is why I have contributed to supporting them for years.

-Robert A.F. (GreatNonprofits user)

EESI's work would not be possible without the generous support of numerous individuals, foundations, and businesses. We would like to thank all our donors and supporters who continue to contribute to our projects!

Thanks to GlobalGiving donors, matching campaigns, and Bonus Day funds, EESI has been able to advance its work on smart energy and climate policy.

EESI is deeply grateful that GlobalGiving’s donors have chosen our project for their charitable giving—and that GlobalGiving itself has honored us as a Vetted Organization and Top-Rated/Superstar project.
