What it means to be a nonprofit partner
The Friends are officially a 1% for the Planet organization nonprofit partner. We joined an alliance of over 1,200 member companies in 40 countries that give 1% of their revenues to environmental causes.
"1% for the Planet member businesses donate at least 1% of their annual sales to support environmental nonprofits," says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet. "We believe deeply that these nonprofits play a critical role in solving the many challenges facing our planet, and our core work is to grow the corporate support that enables these nonprofits to accomplish even more."
Thousands of nonprofits worldwide are included in the 1% for the Planet network, and over $175 million has been funneled to its nonprofit partners to date.
As the Friends are a recognized nonprofit partner with 1% for the Planet, we look forward to bridging more partnerships with businesses. If you, or someone you know are interested in becoming a business support partner we would love to hear from you!
