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 to funding one of our key programs directly.
American ReLeaf and Global ReLeaf Tree Planting — starting at $1 per tree!
American Forests has planted more than 50 million trees since 1990 — in all 50 states and in nearly 50 countries worldwide. An American ReLeaf (domestic) or Global ReLeaf (international) partnership is a natural fit for sales, brand and product promotions and is also perfect for “add-a-dollar” programs.
Community ReLeaf — Making cities greener!
Urban greenspace is critical to the health and quality of life in cities. Through the American Forests Community ReLeaf™ program, we evaluate a city’s canopy cover and other vegetation and work with stakeholders to plant trees in areas with the most need. These projects often involve events with signage, local media outreach and volunteer engagement, allowing our corporate partners to reach their customers or associates where they live.
“Go Paperless” programs that offer tree planting as an incentive to switch from paper to electronic communications have saved companies millions of dollars in operating costs. American Forests has partnered with a host of leading brands on these programs, including Coca-Cola, Dish Network, Jackson National Life Insurance Company, McDonald’s, Nationwide Insurance and Verizon Wireless.
Climate change is arguably the toughest environmental challenge of the 21st century. That’s why offsetting a company’s carbon emissions 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.
Customer and Associate Volunteer Events
While much of American Forests work happens deep within forest ecosystems that may not be easily accessible for groups, American Forests frequently works with our larger partners to create appropriate and inspiring engagement activities for both associates and customers.
