We are Greenkeepers USA, a student-run 501(c)(3)* nonprofit from the Bay Area dedicated to raising awareness and creating environmental solutions for a greener future.
This year, we’ve proposed a meaningful project idea: hosting a tree planting event as a tribute to those who have passed away from COVID-19. After experiencing firsthand the devastating effects of the massive wildfires in California and the enormous toll of the coronavirus pandemic on our community, we knew we had to take action. Our long-term goal for this project is to remember our fellow community members who are no longer with us by planting a tree for each coronavirus death in our county – around 750.
For just $60, you can adopt a tree and receive a certificate with a tree dedication and information about the tree that you have helped plant, as well as a tree tag on your tree at the site of the planting. Any amount is appreciated!
We have already begun making some progress with our project, as we have received grants from local businesses to purchase tools, as well as from larger tech corporations such as Atlassian. We have also spoken to the City of Fremont’s arborist, who has provided us with multiple tree planting locations around the city that can accommodate a total of 185 trees. Our first round of tree planting will be in the Sabercat area in Fremont, CA. Through this initiative, we hope to make a tangible difference in our community by making it greener and raising awareness about environmental issues.
We would greatly appreciate your support in the form of funding that would allow us to purchase trees, soil, and mulch.
100% of the proceeds will go towards buying trees and tools for our project. All donations are tax-deductible. If the company you work at offers a gift matching program, you can request a company matching of your financial donation which will help us get closer to our fundraising goal.**
With your support, we hope to make our project a reality. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
