Since our founding in 1969, MCE has continued to be Missouri’s independent, citizens’ environmental organization for clean water, clean air, clean energy, and a healthy environment. We need the support of donors across the state to make our work possible.
Nearly half of our revenue comes from major donors, and we receive one quarter of our funding from winning grant awards. Because grant money can be specific in terms of how we spend the funds, having a healthy amount of income generated by individual donations allows us to be responsive to emerging needs and issues.
