THERE’S POWER IN PARTNERSHIP
The generous contributions of our corporate sponsors give us the ability to do so much more. These businesses and organizations find value in forming partnerships to support our work and demonstrate their commitment to the environment by planting trees. Many of our brand partners inspire their customers by promising to plant a tree or trees when a product is purchased or a transaction is made with their business.
"Our customers value our commitment to Trees for the Future."
-Trinity Oaks, Partner since 2012
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to plant a tree?
The tree planting cost varies per location, but the average is 25 cents per tree. This is the amount we require all plant-a-tree partners to commit to.
Where are the trees being planted?
Trees for the Future has worked globally since 1989 and we are currently in 9 countries across sub-Saharan Africa. These countries are where we are seeing the most impact with our approach. The benefits of planting trees with farmers in developing countries instead of mass tree plantings are incredible. Trees have a much higher rate of survival and benefit the family when being cared for by a farm. Learn more here.

What are the types of brand partnerships?
Plant-a-Tree In this popular partnership model, many businesses commit to planting a certain number of trees for every product or service sold. Some businesses also give a set amount per year, or donate an amount per quarter depending on how their revenue for that quarter. Plant-a-Tree partners begin with a minimum initial contribution of $1,000 USD and the trees cost 25 cents per tree. Plant-a-Tree partner donations fund our work where it is needed when that contribution comes in.
Adopt-a-Project Through the Adopt-a-Project partnership model, businesses support a specific community by entering into a multi-year commitment to help sponsor a new or current project. Projects consist of 150-600 farming families and plant millions of trees over 4 years at a minimum of $50,000 per year. At any given time, Trees for the Future has multiple projects and thousands of families in our pipeline awaiting sufficient funding.
What does my company's contribution support?
Your company’s support helps us meet the triple bottom line of ending environmental degradation, hunger, and poverty. Your donation funds tree planting in our current locations of work. It funds the seeds, training, and tools to grow Forest Gardens that are on farmers’ land. Each Forest Garden has, on average, thousands of trees, dozens of varieties of fruits and vegetables. This not only helps the environment, it helps communities break free of hunger and poverty.
We are grateful for your companies support and commitment to a better future. It is only because of your support that we can continue our work to meet our mission.
