1% for the Planet connects dollars with doers. Here's how: they link businesses, individuals, and nonprofits to help create partnerships that protect the planet.
They collaborate with individual and business members to identify environmental organizations that will make the greatest impact and align with your giving goals. They certify that every dollar contributed goes to a vetted, trusted nonprofit. Their members have given tens of millions of dollars to the environment, and their nonprofit partners are doing the hard work of restoring our planet for the future. Their goal is to not only direct giving toward environmental causes, but to increase the overall amount of global dollars going to help protect the planet.
1% for the Planet was started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard (founder of Patagonia) and Craig Mathews (founder of Blue Ribbon Flies). Both successful entrepreneurs, they recognized the power of collective action to protect the environment. Today, businesses and individuals continue to make the 1% for the Planet commitment, creating greater impact every year.
