HELP IEF purchase Uniforms for the Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT)

Join the International Elephant Foundation (IEF) in thanking the rangers on the front lines of conservation by donating to the fund to purchase a uniform for each of the rangers employed by Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT)! IEF is donating $12,600 out of our end-of-the year general fund which will purchase a new uniform for each of the 9-1 and 9-2 rangers that IEF supports. But NRT has a large ranger force and each need to be outfitted in the new year.

Though Christmas has come and gone, and people are starting to think about taking down their Christmas trees in preparation for the new year, we ask that you think about one more gift to put under the tree to claim your tax deduction for charitable contributions before the end-of-the-year.

Will you join us in thanking a ranger by putting a uniform under the tree? DONATE TODAY
