Overall Score & Rating 90.50 four stars
  Financial 92.30 four stars

This rating was published 09/01/2017 and includes data from FY2015, the most recent 990 received at that time.

The Geos Institute is a team of scientists, facilitators, and process innovators who believe that the global climate crisis will push humanity to make a collective decision – move toward greater cohesion and peace or widespread violence and conflict. We do not have all of the answers, but we lean hard toward peace and cohesion. And we do that by working on the systems where we believe our focus can have the greatest impact on people and the natural world – community decision making, forest management, and river system restoration. Our team works hard to create a future where we have successfully and collaboratively addressed the systemic causes of climate change to bring about a healthy and prosperous world for people and wildlife. The science is clear. The climate is changing rapidly and in dangerous ways. And human activity is the primary cause.
