1% for The Planet is a global network of businesses, non-profits and individuals, working together for a healthy planet. As a global organization that connects dollars and doers to accelerate smart environmental giving, they recognize that the current level of environmental giving - only 3% of total philanthropy - is not enough to solve the most pressing issues facing our planet.
Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, members have given more than $150 million to environmental nonprofits to date. Today, 1% for the Planet is a network of more than 1,200 member businesses, a new and expanding core of more than 120 individual members, and thousands of nonprofit partners in more than 40 countries.
The foundation of the 1% for the Planet network is the member-nonprofit partnership. Business and individual members engage directly with approved nonprofit partners, providing financial donations, volunteer time, in-kind donations, and other shared-value collaborations. Thriving partnerships help deliver longer-term support and greater impact. Inclusion in the network is currently free for nonprofit partners.
As an approved nonprofit partner, donations made directly towards BTC would also count towards any member's 1% commitment.
