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. Over the course of the calendar year 2022, an individual can meet their 1% commitment in one of the following ways:

  • 100% monetary donation (1% of salary/income)
  • 100% volunteer support (volunteer time valued at $29 USD/hour)
  • Any combination of both methods
Enter your annual income into the calculator to discover your 1% commitment and use the slider to find the perfect balance of donations (monetary and volunteer time) that works for your lifestyle.

Planet Impact Portfolio

The Planet Impact Portfolio is an easy, all-in-one way that members can fulfill their commitment by giving to a balanced portfolio of six nonprofits. This is a great way for members to learn about and fund multiple vetted environmental organizations making a tangible, positive impact for our planet.

Giving Circle

The 1% for the Planet Giving Circle brings together a small group of individual members to engage in discourse and learning, and decide together where they will make a collective donation to an environmental organization. Members can learn more about the Giving Circle and sign up 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 nonprofits. 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 nonprofits of all sizes continually inspires and informs my giving.
