SAVE International is a project of Earth Island Institute.

Earth Island Institute, a 501(c)(3) organization, provides fiscal sponsorship, resources, training, technical assistance, and peer relationships to environmental activists looking for an organizational home and institutional leverage for their work. Becoming a fiscally sponsored project is a strategic decision SAVE International made in order to increase our effectiveness, organizational durability, and greater capacity to do our work. Earth Island leverages the power of a network of diverse projects, the invaluable knowledge and influence of renowned leaders in the environmental movement, and the track record of a 40-year-old organization and experienced staff. They are home to projects on the forefront of the environmental movement, utilizing strategies that are responsive to the social, economic, and political realities of our time.
