A charitable contribution to Ethnographic Institute is a social contract and commitment to help us support and strengthen local initiatives:an investment in cultural diversity, continuity, and social justice for some of the world’s last traditional maritime and fishing societies.
Your generosity will:
Help local communities in their quests to maintain cultural identities that can endure in modernity.
Help communities preserve their traditional environmental management knowledge (TEK) and adaptive social organization by securing access rights and legal entitlements to land and sea resource-use territories, and coastal settlements.
Help communities find pathways out of poverty by practicing environmentally-sound, ‘artisanal’ fishing livelihoods for a better future.
As a registered 501.c.3 non-profit organization, The Ethnographic Institute may accept tax-exempt contributions for charitable purposes.
The Institute extends it's appreciation to Mr. James E. Carley, MD, of Ormond Beach, Florida, for his generous contribution, along with the Ford Foundation-Rio, for providing start-up funding for our marine protected area work in Brazil.
