You're building a more sustainable future. 

Unlike commercial publishers, Island Press is a mission-driven nonprofit with a singular focus on promoting books and ideas that address urgent environmental challenges—even if a publication is not a guaranteed financial success.  

We rely on donors like you to deliver cutting-edge ideas on sustainable communities and the protection of the environment. With your help, we publish 20-30 books and around 60 short-form pieces, like essays and op-eds, every year, covering the most important issues affecting the natural world, the built environment, and human health and food systems.  

Your donations help shape the conversation about environmental resilience, so that advocates, professionals, and policymakers can incorporate the latest information into their decision making. Now, more than ever, we need your partnership to amplify these essential voices and solutions.
