EARTH ISLAND INSTITUTE
The John Muir Trail Foundation is a fiscally-sponsored project (FSP) at Earth Island Institute which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports our environmental conservation efforts. EII helps us manage the accounting and finances, federal and state tax compliance and other administrative functions, so we can focus directly on restoring and conserving the John Muir Trail. Your donations will be received and processed by EII and then sent directly to us. All donors will receive a receipt in a form accepted by the IRS for the full extent of your donation. EII has operated for over 25 years managing environmental projects like ours with distinction and has received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities.
The John Muir Trail Foundation uses industry standard methods to protect any personal information (name, address, phone number and email address) you may share with us in the course of making a donation, signing up as a volunteer or registering for electronic communications. If you choose to make an online donation, your credit card information will be collected, encrypted and transferred to our secure servicer using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology in order to process the transaction. However, we do not store your credit card information. Access to the remaining personal information is reserved solely for Foundation employees who require it to fulfill their job responsibilities. Your personal information will not be shared with any other organization or entity. The Foundation reserves the right to alter these terms at its discretion.
