Our work would not be possible without generous support from friends and donors.

Our private foundation grants cover our work in environmental health, agriculture, tap water and food advocacy. Foundations that support our work include the Jacob and Hilda Blaustein Foundation, Cedar Tree Foundation, Farvue Foundation, Forsythia Foundation, John Sperling Foundation, Jonas Philanthropies, Joyce Foundation, JPB Foundation, Park Foundation, Passport Foundation, Walton Family Foundation, Yellow Chair Foundation and others.

EWG also receives financial and in-kind support from companies that offer a wide range of products and services, including organic food, personal care products and financial services. EWG’s licensing program, EWG VERIFIED™, also provides support for our work. Revenue generated by EWG VERIFIED helps EWG assess whether products qualify for the program and ensures EWG is able to continue its critical research and distribute it to consumers and beyond.

Do you know about EWG’s lobbying arm – the EWG Action Fund?

The EWG Action Fund is a 501(c)(4) organization that relies on individuals, corporations and associations to fund our advocacy for policies that protect people from toxic chemicals and that shift government subsidies toward conservation. Please support the EWG Action Fund with a contribution that allows us to advocate on Capitol Hill.
