Donor Highlight

Ellen Stofan and Tim Dunn

Ellen Stofan and Tim Dunn grew up camping, hiking and skiing and very early on gained an appreciation for the natural world that carried over into their professional lives. As NASA’s former Chief Scientist, Ellen understands very well the planet’s climate and environmental challenges, and since leaving her post, has been focused on encouraging the next generation of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) students. Tim runs Terra Alpha, an investment firm that seeks to demonstrate that companies operating in a more sustainable manner will generate superior returns for their investors and reduce their impact on natural resources. As new donors to WRI, Ellen and Tim recognize that today’s environmental challenges are complex and global. They appreciate WRI’s focus on fewer, bigger initiatives that can drive change at scale and on building data sets and practical tools that companies and institutions can use for tackling the environmental challenges we all share.

Donor Highlight

Meg Hughes and Hal Ott

Years of mission work in Haiti combined with Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth and then witnessing a glacier calving while on an Alaskan cruise convinced South Floridians Meg Hughes and Hal Ott of the importance of tackling environmental issues on a global scale—and not just in their own beautifully xeriscaped yards that require little or no irrigation. This belief is what attracted them to WRI, regularly one of the top-rated environmental organizations by the nonprofit watchdog Charity Navigator. Meg and Hal feel good that WRI is well-managed fiscally and focused on results, not partisan politics.
