As a non-profit organization, we have no board-members nor stakeholders who make a
profit. CSERC is funded solely by private grants, foundations and individual contributions from members. We devote our income to our cause “Defending water, wildlife and wild places” in the Central Sierra and northern Yosemite region. As a non-profit we are transparent about our finances, and our current budget is made publicly available here on our website.
CSERC is a member of 1% for the Planet.
