NRDC finances

For nearly 40 years, NRDC has relied on a robust direct mail program to recruit and maintain the large Membership that gives us standing in court to bring legal action in defense of our environment. We communicate by postal mail -- and other channels -- not only to generate income but to mobilize the public in direct action campaigns that have produced millions of petitions to corporations and government agencies, thereby advancing our environmental mission. As a result, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) guidelines, NRDC allocates a portion of our direct mail costs to program services and to fundraising.
