Meet Our Business Partners

Partnering with Friends of Trees is good for business, good for the planet, good for our community

64% of Friends of Trees volunteers would “definitely” or “more likely” support a business if it provided financial support to Friends of Trees.*

That’s really something to think about, particularly considering that we work with 6,000+ volunteers every year! (*source: 2013 survey of FOT volunteers)

There are a number of ways your business can partner with Friends of Trees to support community tree-planting:

  • Sponsor a Friends of Trees planting event! Sponsorship reaches the broadest audience and plants the most trees. Sponsorship comes with a number of benefits; we’ll work with you to create the best partnership possible.
  • Become a Business Partner. We can create a partnership that is mutually beneficial—and remember, when you support Friends of Trees, all donations plant trees and grow community.


Your support of Friends of Trees delivers a triple bottom line—and then some—because when you sponsor a tree-planting event with us:

  • You reach an engaged, supportive audience.

  • You’re helping increase the urban tree canopy and restore sensitive natural areas.

  • You’re building community through supporting events that bring together thousands of volunteers.

  • You have access to a turn-key event that is great for employee team-building and volunteer opportunities.

  • You’re giving back to your community.

  • 13,000 Facebook followers
  • 8,800 Twitter followers
