A 1% We Can Believe In: 1% For the Planet!

By Megan Logan, Development Associate

What do Patagonia clothing company, Sterling Vineyards and Cliff bars have in common? They’re all part of 1% for the Planet, a unique collaboration of businesses, consumers and nonprofits that are all connected through the power of philanthropy. Since being founded in 2002, 1% for the Planet has created a consortium of more than 1,300 businesses that agree to contribute 1% of their annual sales to environmental groups whose missions these proceeds then support. The Alice Ferguson Foundation has recently been invited to join the non-profit partners in the 1% network.

We are proud to be a part of this varied and vibrant group of people and organizations committed to taking actions that sustain our world. We invite you to learn more and if you recognize a company in the network to recommend that they support our work.

But you don’t have to be part of the 1% for the Planet network to help support the Alice Ferguson Foundation’s efforts. Your membership and donation donations help support our activities every day. Thanks for your support!
