Why Me? As a 1% for the Planet member, you make big decisions! You decide which nonprofit partners to fund, which projects to support and which issues will benefit from your company's time, money and resources. With each donation, you make an impact. Through 1% for the Planet, you have a support system to help you make these decisions. Come with the intention to meet peers and learn from experienced givers, to hone your giving strategy and improve your giving programs.
Why Us? This event will bring together the most committed corporate environmental philanthropists. Together we'll help increase collective knowledge and energy around how to create powerful change for our planet, act collectively and deliberately, fund projects thoughtfully and share resources to reinvigorate the environmental movement.
Why Now? The planet needs us now more than ever. One week before Earth Day, we will gather and commit to be the best we can be as both individual companies and a collective movement. We will support each other to create the most environmental good we can with our 1% of net revenue. Together, our members gave more than $18MM in 2016. We have the power to create real impact!
