1% for the Planet


Mission Statement

We bring dollars and doers together to accelerate smart environmental giving.


1% for the Planet is a global organization that connects dollars and doers to accelerate smart environmental giving. We 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.
Through our business and individual membership, 1% for the Planet inspires people to support environmental organizations through annual membership and everyday actions. We advise on giving strategies, we certify donations, and we amplify the impact of the network. We hope you'll join us!

Program Details

When individuals and businesses join 1% for the Planet, they make a commitment to give back to approved environmentally-focused organizations. A common misconception is that the money comes to us and then we grant it to various nonprofits. This is not the case. Members give directly to approved nonprofits of their choice and we certify this giving annually. Direct giving helps put dollars in the hands of doers quickly and efficiently with 1% for the Planet providing the expert guidance necessary to ensure it’s the smartest donation possible.
