Nonprofit Partnerships Lead to Meaningful Projects with Employees
By Matt Spitsen | September 10, 2018
With summer’s end drawing near and fall planting season approaching, it’s a great time to reflect on what allows us to fulfill our mission of inspiring people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. Partnerships.
Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. — Helen Keller
Seldom can we accomplish our mission without help from individuals, communities, and our partners. This has never been truer as we grow and increase our reach.
Our corporate partners come to us looking for a way to engage their employees with their sustainability and corporate social responsibility goals. They are looking for a way to engage their workforce — but not just in one community, across their global or national footprint.
Thanks to our network of planting partners around the world, we’re able to work with companies and organize tree planting events in communities where they’re needed most. We host tree planting events where our corporate partners have a presence, addressing real issues in the community like replacing trees lost to wildfires, floods, hurricanes, and tree infestations, allowing employees to become involved in the places they live and work.
This fall we’ll be planting and distributing trees throughout Texas and Florida to restore trees lost to the 2017 hurricanes — in addition to other communities across the country where our partners have employees, customers, and a desire to tackle global issues through tree planting. Events like these aren’t possible without our corporate partners, local planting partners, and supporters.
