Support for PRB is support for sharing knowledge that can improve people’s lives, in the United States and globally.

All our work is geared toward providing high-quality information about population, health, and the environment to the widest possible audience, and empowering others—through trainings, online resources, and coalition-building—to use this information to advance the well-being of current and future generations.

Your tax-deductible donation will allow us to make all our knowledge products publicly available to anyone who can benefit from them—anywhere in the world. Donations defray the cost of managing our busy website, where we post all PRB content and data, attracting more than 5 million visitors annually. Donations allow us to disseminate widely through social media channels and hold public information events. Donations also allow PRB to continue to innovate so our products and services remain cutting-edge and responsive to evolving demands.

PRB is also an investment in quality. We earned a top four-star rating from Charity Navigator in recognition of our “strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency.” Charity Navigator also said PRB “exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities” in our area of work.
