ESC Releases First Financial Report

We are happy to announce the release of Ethnobotanical Stewardship Council’s first financial report, which includes details of ESC income, donors, and expenditures for 2014. This report represents an organizational commitment to good governance practices, including transparent and accessible communication about our work and finances.   Download the 2014 ESC Financial Report (.pdf)   In compiling the report, our finance team has been assisted by the finance advisor of our fiscal sponsor MAPS. All data and the report itself have been reviewed by the ESC board. We are also grateful for the advice and involvement of our accountants at Altruic Advisors. We appreciate your patience, as the report took longer to prepare than we had anticipated. We are committed to improving over time. Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions on how we can improve our financial or other reporting. Contact...

Due to sustained opposition from a small but significant portion of stakeholders, we have dissolved the Ethnobotanical Stewardship Council.

We are grateful for your support in increasing dialogue, learning with one another, and raising awareness about safer, more sustainable, and more reciprocal traditional plant use practices.

For a summary of our work, please see our 2014 financial report or our Dialogues Report.
