Are you ready to join the One Tree Planted Reforestation Movement?

In an effort to plant as many trees as possible, we’ve expanded our fundraising platform to cover more ground across the globe. To make this effort a reality, we are calling on Grassroots and Small & Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) to give us a hand as Reforestation Partners.

Commitment to the environment is a huge part of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).  And while CSR initiatives come in different shapes and sizes, leading a tree planting fundraiser is a great way to show your enterprise’s dedication to the Earth.  

"Sustainability made simple" is a principle that is exemplified in the story of our organization.  Getting started with your own tree planting initiative is not only simple, it’s easy and fun too!

So by now you are probably wondering, where do I sign up?

Before sending you off to get started, here are a few things that will guide you along the way.

#1 – Joining the Reforestation Movement 

Become a Fundraiser

You can sign up as an individual – making your company name part of your personalized campaign title & description.

When you sign up as an individual, you will make direct contributions to your page, and people can donate on your page to help you achieve your goal.

OR

You can sign up as a team for your company.  When you create a company team, your customers, clients, and supporters can join your team to help you reach your goal by signing up as individual fundraisers and joining your team.  Collectively people will work together, fundraising for your team, planting more trees through collaboration and empowerment.

#2 – Choosing a Fundraising Goal

This part is entirely up to you, and it can be edited through your page at any time.

The image below shows 4 different levels of impact as recommendations.  You will find these same images and descriptions on the campaign landing page. 

Impact Levels Reforestation Grassroots Campaign

Please note: By clicking on the “Fundraise” button within each level of impact, your goal will be connected to the chosen category, and this will be displayed on your individual page.  After you have created your individual page, you can then create a team page to get more people on board, helping you achieve your goal.

#3 – Setting Up Your Page

This is where things get personal.  Whether you are setting your company up as a team or as an individual, you will have the opportunity to make the page your own.  You can upload images and information, sharing details about why you are fundraising to plant trees.  This is a great opportunity to share your story and declare your commitment to the environment.

Let’s Get Planting!
