Gift A Tree

Our Gift a Tree pro­gram offers you a spe­cial and last­ing way to cel­e­brate and hon­or the peo­ple, pets and events that have touched and shaped your life.

All Tree Ded­i­ca­tions and Spon­sor­ships are incor­po­rat­ed into the reg­u­lar tree plant­i­ng pro­gram which takes place dur­ing the spring (March to May) and fall (Octo­ber to Decem­ber). We ask for a min­i­mum dona­tion of $100 which cov­ers the cost of the tree, plant­i­ng sup­plies, staff time as well as a spe­cial com­mem­o­ra­tive card that will be sent to the hon­oree with your cus­tomized mes­sage.

Workplace Giving

Many com­pa­nies and orga­ni­za­tions rec­og­nize the true val­ue of their employ­ees’ phil­an­thropy and offer match­ing gift pro­grams that can effec­tive­ly double–or even triple–your char­i­ta­ble gift. Cor­po­rate match­ing gifts are a great way for you to max­i­mize your per­son­al con­tri­bu­tions and increase the impact of your gift to Tree Pitts­burgh. To find out if your employ­er has a match­ing gift pro­gram, con­tact your HR depart­ment.

You may find us list­ed as Friends of the Pitts­burgh Urban For­est, our legal name.

Corporate Giving

Your busi­ness can ben­e­fit from our Com­mu­ni­ty Part­ner­ship Pro­gram. Tree Pitts­burgh offers a vari­ety of oppor­tu­ni­ties for your busi­ness to vol­un­teer with and/or donate resources to our pro­grams.

Team-Build­ing Through Vol­un­teerism
Tree Pitts­burgh coor­di­nates vol­un­teer work­days for cor­po­rate, school, and com­mu­ni­ty groups. These work­days are an oppor­tu­ni­ty for groups to engage in a team-build­ing activ­i­ty while plant­i­ng or car­ing for young trees. Tree Pitts­burgh staff mem­bers pro­vide instruc­tion and lead groups in approx­i­mate­ly 2–4 hours of tree plant­i­ng and/or care. Cor­po­rate events are typ­i­cal­ly held on Fri­days, but Tree Pitts­burgh works with each indi­vid­ual group on a case-by-case basis. In 2015 alone, cor­po­rate vol­un­teers cared for 1,066 trees across the city and helped to plant near­ly 200 more along streets and riv­er trails.

We encour­age par­tic­i­pat­ing groups to become a cor­po­rate spon­sor at a lev­el that is most mean­ing­ful to you.

Increase Social Impact by Donat­ing Resources
Tree Pitts­burgh part­ners with groups that may not have the time to vol­un­teer, but are will­ing to donate resources in sup­port of our pro­grams. Exam­ples of resource dona­tions include vol­un­teer refresh­ments, con­fer­ence room space, tools, sup­plies, or a mon­e­tary dona­tion on behalf of your group.
