Help Make a Difference with TreesCharlotte

TreesCharlotte has the ambitious goal to plant 500,000 trees by 2050, and it can’t happen without support from the community. The most direct way you can assist with our mission is by making a donation and becoming a member of TreesCharlotte.

The TreeCharlotte Endowment Fund was established to provide support for the operations needed for tree planting and care of our urban forest in perpetuity. The fund goal is $15 million, of which $6 million has been raised in donations and pledges. Once the endowment is fully funded, TreesCharlotte will be able to cover the annual expense of planting trees through the interest earned rather than raising operating funds year after year.


Your Gift is Vital to Our Mission

At TreesCharlotte, we keep things simple, and the simple truth is the more you donate, the more trees we plant. For every $10,000 raised, we’re able to plant and steward 125 trees. TreesCharlotte is a lean, efficient, highly effective collaborative powered through volunteer efforts. With only two staff members, TreesCharlotte is able to allocate almost off of its fundraising to go directly toward planting and caring for trees. The demand to plant trees is nearly endless. It simply boils down to having the proper amount of resources to buy trees and support volunteer planting efforts.
