We envision a world that honors and values cultural and biological diversity and the critical contribution of tropical rainforests to our planet’s life support system. We believe that indigenous self-determination is paramount, and see that indigenous knowledge, cultures and traditional practices contribute greatly to sustainable and equitable stewardship of the Earth. We strive for a world in which governments, corporations and civil society respect the collective rights of indigenous peoples to free, prior and informed consent over any activity affecting their territories and resources. We commit, in the spirit of partnership and mutual respect, to support our indigenous allies in their efforts to protect life, land, and culture in accordance with their aspirations and needs.

Ben Towne Foundation’s mission is to change the way we treat and cure kids. 100% of proceeds to Ben Towne Foundation accelerate groundbreaking research accomplished at the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research at Seattle Children’s Research Institute. Center Director Dr. Michael Jensen has developed a method of reprogramming the body’s own defense system to kill cancer. His research promises a future of cancer cures without the devastating side effects of radiation and chemotherapy. In 2013, the first two patients in a cellular immunotherapy Phase 1 clinical trial to be treated with reprogrammed T cells from the Ben Towne Center for relapsed pediatric leukemia both had a positive response and are in remission.

Plant With Purpose works with rural farmers worldwide to increase their ability to feed and provide for their families. Rural families, who make up 70% of the world’s poorest people, depend on the environment for survival. Yet because of deforestation, their land is not producing enough. PWP partners with families to help them change their circumstances and live with dignity. PWP’s approach combines reforestation, sustainable agriculture training, microfinance, and spiritual renewal. Trees restore soil fertility, increasing food production. Diverse crops means better nutrition. As incomes increase, families can send children to school. And a path out of poverty begins.
