species faces extinction due to climate change
The evidence is overwhelming: climate change is an imminent threat, our food systems are increasingly stressed, and our lands, waters, and species are threatened like never before. If we don't act now, the viability of our planet and our quality of life – to say nothing of the health of our economy – face an existential threat.
Join the 1% for the Planet global movement by pledging to give back to environmental non-profits each year. 1% of the Planet can help you find your perfect non-profit partner, ensure you give smarter, and amplify the impact of your commitment.
1% for the Planet collaborates with individual and business members to identify environmental organizations that will make the greatest impact and align with their giving goals. Individuals pledge to donate 1% of their salary and businesses pledge to donate 1% of their revenues directly to approved nonprofit partners. Giving comes in the form of monetary and volunteer support. 1% for the Planet bring dollars and doers together and certifies that every dollar contributed goes to a vetted, trusted non-profit. Members have given hundreds of millions of dollars to the environment to date, and their non-profit partners are doing the hard work of restoring our planet for the future.
