Frequently asked questions

You can find quick answers for common questions below.

What is EDF's taxpayer ID number?

EDF's Tax ID Number is 11-6107128. As a 501(c)3 organization, donations to EDF are tax-deductible.

How can I confirm that a solicitation I received came from EDF?

Our donors are the lifeblood of EDF and we are grateful to all of you. Should you ever receive an email solicitation that looks suspicious — potentially a form of fraud known as phishing — please be sure to alert our member services team.

Do you have volunteer opportunities at EDF?

Your efforts at the local level are important! Through our partnership with EarthShare you can search for volunteer efforts in your area. Also, when you sign up to be an EDF online activist you'll get updates and invitations for local events.

How do I receive less mail from EDF?

Please reach out to our Member Care Team with your contact preferences and include the full mailing address to help us complete your request more quickly.

Where is my gift item?

Gift items may take six to eight weeks to arrive. If it has been more than eight weeks since your donation and you still have not received your item, please reach out to our Member Care Team.

May I use an EDF photo or article?

We appreciate your interest in one of our photos! Unfortunately we cannot give permission to reprint photos, as we contract to use them on a limited basis. However, we do happily allow articles from our website or newsletters to be reprinted as long as we are given full credit.
