Tree Trust works throughout the entire year to counteract the decline of our urban tree canopy and to support the next generation of Minnesota’s workforce. It’s no easy task. Every day, ash trees are disappearing. Before the emerald ash borer crisis is over, Minnesota will lose millions of trees. And that’s not all. We’re seeing a concerning workforce shortage, and many in our community are facing barriers to employment. This is where Tree Trust sees opportunity for the vision that guides our work every single month, year after year, to build a thriving workforce living on a healthy planet.

To focus on our mission and accomplish our goals as effectively as possible, we need reliable financial support every month. This is where you come in! Tree Trust recently launched our monthly giving program, Friends of Trees, for those who contribute a monthly gift of any amount. As monthly donors, our Friends of Trees provide the financial stability we need to grow our urban canopy and train promising young people throughout the year.

Why Monthly Giving?

Monthly giving is an easy way to build giving into your everyday life. You can know that, over time, your recurring donations are transforming many lives through Tree Trust. This is more than an investment in Tree Trust – it’s an investment in your values and your community.

When you make a monthly gift and become a Friend of Trees, you become our partner – someone we can rely and depend on to help us achieve our mission. As an expression of our gratitude, our Friends of Trees receive a special Tree Trust gift including a reusable canvas bag and wood sticker, insider news and email updates, and an annual statement for donation tax deductible purposes.
