San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 30, 2011
Give2Asia, a US-based public charity promoting transformative philanthropy for Asia, announces today a new fiscal sponsor partnership with Coral Triangle Center (CTC).
“We are excited about our new partnership with Coral Triangle Center Foundation,” said Jennifer Lofing, Vice President of Programs. “This partnership will allow passionate donors in the U.S. to support CTC’s mission of environmental conservation.”
Spanning coastal and marine areas of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Timor Leste, the area known as the Coral Triangle is a global epicenter of marine diversity and a major center of coral evolution.
The resources from the area are able to sustain food security for more than 126 million people in the region. Under threats of degradation to the ecosystem, the Coral Triangle Center was established in 2000 to bring together leaders and communities to participate in marine conservation.
Give2Asia’s Fiscal Sponsorship helps approved Asia-based charitable groups like CTC Foundation establish a U.S. presence, provides professional donor stewardship, and makes possible tax-deductible support for Asia-based groups. Give2Asia currently provides fiscal sponsorship to over 100 charitable institutions across the Asia-Pacific region.
U.S. donors can make tax-deductible donations online to Give2Asia in support of Coral Triangle Center at http://www.give2asia.org/ctc, or by sending donations to “Give2Asia” by check, wire, or securities transfer.
