Borderlands Restoration Network of organizations believe that our ambitious vision can be accomplished only by engaging a wide range of resources -- private philanthropy, public funding, and the growing number of private businesses and entrepreneurs committed to supporting both prosperous communities and flourishing ecosystems. The Borderlands Restoration Network of organizations includes public charities, a private foundation, and three private companies that have social missions supporting different components of Borderlands Restoration Network’s mission. Having a network of organizations helps provide the opportunity and flexibility to harness both philanthropic and social impact capital, allowing us to advance our collective work in ways that no one organization could do alone. Borderlands Restoration Network also gives us the flexibility to pool our resources to work efficiently for maximum impact. We collaborate though contracts between organizations that maintain separation of legal entities and fully comply with IRS requirements.
We constantly look for ways to leverage our collective capacities and expertise and expand our collaboration to include more organizations and linkages.
Here are a just a few examples of ways we work together:
The Borderlands Restoration Field School draws on the collective expertise of all of the Network Organizations (and many others) from the learning laboratories on Cuenca Los Ojos lands in the U.S and Mexico, to the outdoor classroom of Deep Dirt Farm Institute, and to Wildlife Corridor’s critical linkage between Santa Rita and Patagonia Mountains to Mexico.
Borderlands Restoration Native Plant Materials Program is a collaboration between Borderlands Restoration, L3C (the programs’ founder) and Borderlands Restoration Network, providing for flexibility to bring in funding from both philanthropic and social enterprise resources.
Borderlands Restoration Network, Borderlands Restoration L3C, and Wildlife Corridors collaborate on habitat restoration work and research on Wildlife Corridors land, one of the few land corridors available in the U.S. for 5 species of cats, including jaguar and ocelot.
