Citizens campaign fund for the environment receives $2,000 commitment from RBC Blue Water Project to protect local water
NEW YORK, June 2, 2016 – RBC announced today a donation of $2,000 to support the Citizens Campaign Fund for the Environment. Founded in 1989, they are a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) environmental organization providing sound scientific information and research to support prudent governmental policies and environmental practices and promoting environmental justice and environmental education to benefit residents of New York, Connecticut, and the Nation. Their work in New York and Connecticut is especially relevant to our team as we all have either grown up here, live here now, or have family here. The Citizens Campaign Fund for the Environment was chosen from among hundreds of applicants from around the world, based on their commitment to addressing water issues and protecting water in urbanized areas.
The RBC Blue Water Project is a historic, wide-ranging, 10-year global commitment to help protect the world's most precious natural resource: fresh water. Since 2007, RBC has pledged nearly $44 million to more than 740 charitable organizations worldwide that protect water, including the grants announced today, with an additional $8.8 million pledged to universities for water programs.
