ACA protects the biological diversity of the wilderness areas of the Amazon headwaters. Our strategy is to increase conservation capacity through science, training and sustainable resource management by partnering with local and international organizations.
Secure online donations can be made to ACA in one of three ways:
1) Through Google Wallet (using the field to the right):
“I chose to volunteer for ACA because it works at the ground level with local organizations that can move quickly and effectively. ACA is the best organization that I have worked with in my 40 years in conservation, including my time as Secretary of the Interior.”
--Bruce Babbitt, ACA Board of Directors
Please note: a small processing fee is taken out of donations made through Google Wallet, Network for Good, and PayPal. This will be deducted from your donation and reflected in your tax receipt and acknowledgement letter, unless you elect to add the fee to your donation — Google Wallet (2.9% + $0.30), NFG (5%) or PayPal (2.2% + $0.30).
If you prefer to mail a check, please make it out to "Amazon Conservation Association" and send it to our office at 1822 R Street NW, Washington, DC 20009 with "donation" in the memo. You will receive a tax receipt by mail within 30 days.

Your tax-deductible contribution will help us expand our conservation initiatives in the southwestern Amazon, where leading research shows some of the highest concentrations of biological diversity in the world exist.
ACA is featured in the 2013/14 Catalogue for Philanthropy as "one of the best small charities in the Greater Washington region" and has a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the leading charity evaluator in America.
Hundreds of corporations across the world recognize the value of their employees' donations to ACA, and offer matching gift programs to further increase the value of their donations.
What To Do:
Ask your employer for a Matching Gift Form (if available), fill out your portion, and mail it in the envelope with your donation.
Or: If you’ve already sent in your donation or made your donation online, fax the form to (202) 234-2358, or email it to email@example.com
More and more companies offer online Matching Gift processing, so no form is required – just let them know you donated to us, and they take care of the rest. Some companies even offer donation via payroll deduction, so we receive your donation and their matching gift in one lump sum!
ACA is a non-profit, tax exempt public charity as described in section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. A copy of our IRS Letter is available on demand. Our financial information is publicly available on this website.
Through an honorarium or a memorial, you can recognize loved ones with a gift. We will send the honoree or the family of the memorialized an acknowledgement card to inform them of your gift. Honorarium gifts are appropriate for birthdays, baptisms, bar and bat mitzvahs, graduations, house warmings, weddings, new babies and more.

ACA will never share, sell, trade, rent or publish names, telephone numbers, or e-mail or postal addresses of our donors, unless specifically requested to do so by the donor. ACA will use contact information (e-mail, telephone number and address) of donors for these purposes only:
Unless specifically stated otherwise in writing by the donor, the default is for staff and volunteers to assume that all donations are not to be publicly announced. All access to donor financial information is strictly limited to professional staff who need to process the data. No such data are given to any person, organization or group who does not need to access it.
Tax laws in the United States and the District of Columbia require ACA to keep contact information and the contribution levels of donors on file in the event that tax collection agencies wish to access this information.
ACA only uses online payment processing services with world class security and strong reputations. We do not store, nor do we have access to your credit card information, bank account numbers, or other account data sent to those processing services.
