Cleaning up one community at a time brings us closer to a Pure Earth
Formerly known as Blacksmith Institute, Pure Earth's mission is to identify and clean up the poorest communities throughout the developing world where high concentrations of toxins have devastating health effects. Toxic pollutants affect the health of more than 200 million people worldwide. The number of people affected is comparable to HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria. Yet pollution is one of the most underreported and underfunded problems in the world. The majority of acutely toxic sites are caused by local business, many of them artisanal or small-scale. Abandoned sites are also quite common. Surprisingly, international companies are rarely implicated. Women and children are especially at risk suffering neurologic and immune system damage and an early death. Pure Earth devises clean-up strategies, empowers local champions and secures support from national and international partnerships. Cleaning up one community at a time brings us closer to a Pure Earth.

Increasing affordable access to healthy, local food
Wholesome Wave empowers under-served consumers to make healthier food choices by increasing affordable access to fresh, local food. 44M Americans spend $70B in SNAP (food stamps) annually, plus $63B of their own money on groceries = $133B annually!We are working to shift how that money is spent nationwide. If people can't afford produce, they can't buy it. But when they can, they do. And when millions of Americans eat more fruits and vegetables, we see immediate improvements for families and farmers-and enormous long-term gains for public health, local economies, and the environment.

Improving quality educational opportunities for children by strengthening charter school authorizing
The National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA) works to increase and improve quality educational opportunities for children by strengthening charter school authorizing. Our vision is that all children will have access to public schools that prepare them for success in life. We focus on authorizers, the legal entities doing the work of authorizing. They decide who can start a new charter school, set expectations and oversee school performance, and decide which schools should continue to serve students or not. Depending on state law, authorizers can be school districts, education agencies, independent boards, universities, mayors and municipalities, and not-for-profits. Over 1,000 authorizers in 44 states (43 plus the District of Columbia) with charter laws are on the forefront of creating the next generation of public schools, helping translate charter school ideas into solid realities for millions of children. The schools they oversee are both more nimble and more accountable, built on the premise that it is a privilege to educate America's children. Since its founding, NACSA has grown into an organization with 30 staff and 175 member organizations representing more than 1,200 professionals.
