Cooperating to Protect Our Most Valuable Resources
Our mission is to work with the community to preserve the nation’s unique natural environment and perpetuate its conservation ethic for the economic and social benefit of present and future generations of Palauans and for the enjoyment and education of all.
General Membership Program
General Membership is open to the public, both nationally and internationally. There are currently four types of membership, each with their own requirements regarding eligibility and minimum contribution. All members receive the organizations quarterly newsletter and receive other valuable benefits.
The allotment program generates sustainable and consistent funding from individuals working in the government and private sectors in Palau. Until 2010, the program focused on government employees. The program has expanded its focus to include the private sector. Employees participating in the allotment program commit at least $1.00 per pay period (26-27 per year) toward PCS. The fund generated from the allotment program goes straight to PCS Endowment.
Guest Match Program
The Guest Match program currently target guests at hotels and tourists operators. As of recently, the only participating resort is Palau Pacific Resort (PPR). PPR placed collection boxes in the hotel and has agreed to match any guest donation to PCS $1 for $1.
Corporate Partners for Conservation (CPC) Program
The CPC initiative targets Palau based companies and asks for a minimum donation of $1,000. To become a CPC member, a business or an individual commit to making an annual donation of a minimum of $1,000 to PCS, giving us the financial support we need to implement long-term projects. As of 2016, we have more or less 25 active CPC members.
