Trees for the Future has worked around the world since our founding in 1989. We are currently working in nine 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 farmer.

Impact Planting: In this popular partnership model, many businesses commit to planting a certain number of trees for their product(s) or service(s) sold. Some businesses also give a set amount per year, or donate an amount per quarter depending on their revenue for that quarter. Impact Planting partners begin with a minimum initial contribution of $1,000 USD and the trees cost an average of 25 cents per tree. Impact Planting partner donations fund our work where it is needed when that contribution comes in.
Project Sponsorship: Through the Project Sponsor 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 2-4 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.
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.
