Become a Corporate Partner

For more than 100 years, businesses all across the United States and around the world have supported the work of American Forests. We work with companies to offer special opportunities in cause-related marketing, community impact efforts, education initiatives and employee participation programs.

Key aspects of a partnership with American Forests:

  • Meaningful. Protecting and restoring wildlife habitat is an integral part of our mission.
  • Turn-key. Our work lends itself perfectly to customer engagement campaigns.
  • Non-partisan and non-confrontational. Everybody loves trees!
  • Association with a trusted partner. American Forests is the nation’s oldest national nonprofit conservation organization.
  • Business friendly. We offer social media and publicity support, access to environmental videos and photos, licensing, exclusivity (special conditions apply) and a presence on our website, alongside other benefits.
  • Inexpensive. Supporting our shared environment is low-cost and budget friendly.
Our Partners

Types of Partnerships

Cause Marketing and Sponsorships
Cause-related marketing and sponsorships help enhance a company’s brand, promote sales, support American Forests’ mission and can range from donating a percentage of sales to support our work or funding one of our key programs directly.

Global ReLeaf® Tree Planting – starting at $1 per tree!
American Forests has planted more than 44 million trees in the last two decades across all 50 states and in 44 countries worldwide. A Global ReLeaf partnership is a natural fit for sales, brand and product promotions and is also perfect for “add-a-dollar” programs.

Urban Tree Planting
Urban forests are critical to the health and quality of life within our cities. Through the American Forests Community ReLeaf program, we evaluate a city’s trees and other vegetation and work with stakeholders to plant trees in areas where needed most. These projects often involve events with signage, local media outreach and volunteer engagement.

Paperless Campaign
“Go Paperless” programs with leading brands, such as Coca-Cola, Jackson National Life Insurance Company, McDonald’s, Nationwide Insurance and Verizon Wireless, have resulted in hundreds of thousands of consumers switching to electronic communications, saving those companies millions of dollars in operating costs.

Carbon Offsetting & Meeting ReLeaf
Climate change is arguably the toughest environmental challenge of the 21st century. That’s why offsetting a company’s carbon emissions — and those generated from annual conferences — is a smart choice for the health of our planet. Offsetting emissions and greening meetings doesn’t have to be expensive; trees are an affordable, hard-working solution.

Small Business Partnership
We recognize that the business community is made up of both big and small companies alike. The American Forests Small Business Partnership is designed for startups and smaller businesses looking to explore charitable support opportunities on a limited budget.

Volunteer Tree Planting
From time to time we receive requests to set up volunteer tree planting days for company staff. We are happy to discuss this with you. However, please note that as much as we would like to, we typically can’t offer these free of charge.
