As a Sightline reader, you are well informed about the challenges that the Northwest faces in the journey toward health, safety, and sustained prosperity for all. Perhaps you’d like to make a difference, but are unsure about where to begin. At times, sustainability matters and policy choices can seem like colossal burdens in the journey to a happy, healthy planet. To begin can seem a tremendous act.
Luckily, we are in this together, and donating to Sightline is an easy way to help!
For the next two weeks we’re asking our friends, readers (that’s you), and subscribers to make a financial contribution in order to sustain our research, analysis, and news service.
Will you support Sightline’s quest for a sustainable future? Join us now and make a secure online gift in support of our fall fund drive.Sightline provides you with news and information that matters, and we depend on readers like you to make it possible. This exciting time of year is your chance to tell us that Sightline makes a difference in your day and that you, like all of us, want to make a difference in our community.
Sightline has helped forge a path of progress toward an economy and way of life that are environmentally sound, economically vibrant, and socially just. Your gift will help equip Northwest decision-makers with the policy research and practical tools they need to advance long-term solutions to our region’s most significant challenges. It truly will make a difference.
Here are some additional reasons why you should make a gift to Sightline today:
- A gift to Sightline powers research efforts which yield tangible, market-based solutions to the climate challenges that we face together.
- A gift to Sightline supports the work that you appreciate, like this blog, Sightline Daily news, and the Cascadia Scorecard—a huge and open source of research, maps, and graphics on pressing Northwest issues.
- A gift to Sightline fuels the positive change that our region needs to thrive. When Sightline policy director Eric de Place testifies before state legislators about the dangerous potential of oil and coal trains rolling through local towns, and when cities like Seattle, Vancouver, and Montesano, WA resultantly resolve to ban oil export facility development, our donors are to thank. When executive director Alan Durning’s book Unlocking Home inspired changes in many CDC regulations and opened up affordable micro-housing for many, Sightline’s donors shared the win. And again, when the Washington State traffic forecast finally predicted a decline in traffic in their transportation revenue forecast, much influenced by the work of deputy director Clark Williams-Derry, donors and friends like you helped herald in the end of a “build now, pay later” auto era.
You are a global thinker. You are socially aware. You can make a difference. A gift to Sightline is where it starts.
