Impactful Giving Made Easy

We offer impactful giving options for individuals and advise them to ensure their giving aligns with the environmental issues they care about most. Your 1% commitment can be 1% of your salary/income or an amount that is personally meaningful to you. Over the course of the calendar year 2022, an individual can meet this commitment in one of the following ways:

  • Monetary donation(s) 
  • Volunteer support (volunteer time valued at $29 USD/hour)
  • Any combination of both methods

If you are basing your 1% commitment off of your income/salary, please enter your annual income into the commitment calculator below to find the perfect balance of donations (monetary and volunteer time) that works for your lifestyle.

Annually, 10% of the fund will be granted to vetted environmental partners. Members can learn more about this unique philanthropic opportunity here.

1% for the Planet is a great fit for me as I typically give to various environmental organizations every year, but I can now do it under the umbrella of a single organization. Being involved has provided exposure to new organizations doing critical work in areas that I would not have known about otherwise

1% for the Planet allows us to support a mission that we believe in and that helps thousands of people across the globe align with amazing environmental partners. Getting involved was a no-brainer!

—Individual member, Natali

I try to give to organizations (often where I have interned or worked) whose work I feel has ripple effects to accelerate and propel change and growth. 1% for the Planet could not fit into my intention more; their role in managing and growing the connection between corporate and personal philanthropy and on-the-ground environmental partners of all sizes continually inspires and informs my giving.
