As a monthly donor, you join our Global Citizen community - nearly 2000 people who have said “Yes!” to an unprecedented Alliance between the indigenous and modern worlds.
Partners Working for a Long-term Vision
Since 1997, individuals throughout the world have stepped into being Global Citizens: consciously reallocating their resources each month away from inadvertently contributing to the destruction of the planet and towards activities that affirm a healthy relationship between the people and the planet. As an organization, Pachamama Alliance provides the framework for and the opportunity to engage with this collective reallocation to effect profound transformation in the world.
Proven Impact Throughout the World
Through Pachamama Alliance, the ongoing investment of Global Citizens has facilitated successful long-term initiatives not often possible for more conventional non-profit organizations, including:
- Supporting Ecuador’s Achuar people through the multi-year process of gaining collective title to 1.8 million acres of their ancestral rainforest home
- Expanding the Ikiama Nukuri maternal health program to become a comprehensive community-wide initiative, reaching 75% of the population and led by Achuar women
- Spreading the transformational message of the Awakening the Dreamer Symposium to over 80 countries, in 16 languages
- Developing a groundbreaking educational initiative — Up to Us — deepening individual personal transformation and training people to engage in impactful collective social action.
All of these accomplishments are only possible through the continuity of a committed relationship. Establish yourself as the backbone of this work, the ground on which all these achievements stand, by consciously choosing to invest monthly with Pachamama Alliance.
Why Become A Global Citizen
The most important reason to become a Global Citizen is because you believe in the possibility of a just, thriving, and sustainable future for the human family – and you're willing to put your financial resources behind your belief.
Use Your Money as a Tool for Transformation
Taking a powerful stand for the future is available to you regardless of your circumstances &emdash; where you live, how much money you earn, how old you are, etc.
Money is a conduit for our intentions, whether those intentions are conscious or unconscious. Becoming a Global Citizen is a practice of investigating your intentions and beliefs, and then consciously imbuing your money with your intentions for a positive future as you employ it to create that world.
Currently, Global Citizens give anywhere from $25 to $400 each month. While the Global Citizen community is as diverse as the global make-up, what each member has in common is that they have chosen to align a financial investment that is significant to them in making a difference every single month. And the power of their collective intentions is shifting the world.
Play a Crucial Role in Creating a New Future
Pachamama Alliance was founded in response to the Achuar people’s request for allies in the “North” who would work to “change the dream of the modern world,” and ensure a just, thriving, and sustainable future for all life.
Every person who makes an ongoing commitment as a Global Citizen is another ally with the Achuar for the preservation of life itself.
With the collective power of Global Citizens, we can invest in innovative longer-term projects that would otherwise be limited by the cost of short-term, one-time fundraising:
- Rights of Nature and other legal strategies that empower communities, both in the rainforest and around the globe, to establish a healthy human-Earth relationship
- Ecotourism and alternative economic models that allow indigenous communities to preserve their way of life without extractive industries, creating the basis for long-term economic alternatives that ensure the preservation of the rainforest
- Transformational education programs and an engagement pathway that shift us from a collective worldview and the corresponding actions that create an unsustainable path to one that creates a breakthrough for humanity
Enjoy the Benefits of Community
As a Global Citizen, you will join a vibrant community on the leading edge of the actions and ideas shifting the way humanity relates to our future.
As an organization, our commitment to every Global Citizen is to keep you connected to your wider community of fellow visionaries and to the extraordinary results you make possible in the world in a number of ways:
- Email updates throughout the year with the latest from the Amazon and Pachamama communities around the world
- A mid-year update on our accomplishments, goals, and strategy directly from our co-founders
- Special events designed just for Global Citizens to connect with one another
At its heart, Pachamama Alliance is an invitation to be in relationship, beginning with the Achuar people deep in the Amazon rainforest and reaching out to people across the globe.
When you become a Global Citizen, you are saying, “Yes!” to that invitation, and becoming a stand for the web of life, strengthening the growing alliance between people from all cultures to create a new way forward for all.
