Partnership Application

Plant a Tree

In this partnership model businesses will commit to plant a certain number of trees for every product or service sold.  The partnering business will be responsible for sending consistent period reports accounting for the amount of trees they have pledged to plant in their promotion/campaign, and then send a check for that amount of trees to Trees for the Future at the rate no less than 10 cents per tree (USD $0.10). Plant a Tree partners begin with a minimum initial contribution of $1,000 USD. 

Adopt a Project

TREES is constantly turning down farmers in need due to a lack of funding for new projects.  Through the Adopt-a-project partnership model businesses interested in having their finger more directly on the pulse of their support enter into a multi-year deal to help sponsor a new project.  At any given time, TREES has multiple new projects and thousands of families in our pipeline awaiting sufficient funding.  For a four year annual commitment of $60,000 USD (full project) or $20-30,000 USD (partial project) can be the official sponsor of a new Forest Garden project that restores degraded lands, provides economic growth opportunity, and brings about sustained food security for individuals and families in need.  

Carbon Offset

The trees we plant and the Forest Gardens we establish store significant amounts of Carbon.  In this partnership model, businesses focused on offsetting their carbon footprint can work with TREES to determine an appropriate carbon calculation from which to base donations on (see  Businesses are provided with calculation instructions to determine the carbon impact of their operational activities.  Upon completion of the carbon calculation, TREES provides businesses with a carbon study complete with the cost of sequestering a certain volume of carbon. Businesses should make consistent period reports to TREES indicating the desired volume of carbon to be offset.

Charity of Choice

For new and smaller companies that wish to support TREES but cannot yet afford the initial $1,000 contribution, we also offer the opportunity to support us as your "charity of choice." These partners start with a minimum contribution of $250 USD, and are provided a smaller package of assets to use to communicate their support of the TREES mission. These partners are not officially recognized on the website until they have reached official partner status.

Company Description is to be used on your company's individual page in "Our Sponsors" section.
