New partnership with 1% for the planet
Naturefund is a new nonprofit partner of 1% for the Planet, an alliance of over 1,200 member companies in 48 countries that give one percent of revenues to environmental causes. We are now eligible to receive donations from 1% member companies, placing them among a diverse, global network of environmental organizations. 1% member businesses fuel this non-profit network through their annual contributions, which totaled over $22 million in 2011. Partnership with 1% greatly expands the potential pool of funding to which we can look to for support. Newly approved we contribute to a healthier planet by buying land for nature, in order to protect habitat for the great variety of species. With climate change in mind, we concentrate on buying forests and replanting them. Over 3,000 non-profits worldwide are included in the 1% network, and over $100 million has been funneled to its nonprofit partners to date. “The intent of 1% for the Planet is to help fund these diverse environmental organizations so that collectively they can be a more powerful force in solving the world’s problems,” Yvon Chouinard, founder of 1% for the Planet.
