The UPS Foundation has sent a $300,000 grant to The Nature Conservancy for programs to protect forests in Brazil, China and Africa.
The UPS (NYSE: UPS) gift supports The Nature Conservancy’s goal of protecting at least 10 percent of the world's major habitat types by 2015. From tree-planting efforts in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil to conservation initiatives for rural residents in the Yunnan Forest in China to reforestation efforts in Africa’s Highland Forest, UPS’ gift will help protect forests for future generations, UPS said.
The UPS Foundation has supported The Nature Conservancy since 1977, when it began matching its employees’ gifts to the organization.
"From Brazil to China and around the world, The Nature Conservancy has developed programs that provide the kind of sustainable and measurable impact we seek to fund," said Lisa Hamilton, president of The UPS Foundation, in a press statement. "The UPS Foundation is proud to support this important work."
