Why Leadership Giving?

Tree Trust is here, year after year – working to counteract the decline of our urban tree canopy and to support and prepare the next generation of Minnesota’s workforce. We have big plans for addressing these needs, but doing so requires significant financial resources.

This is where you come in!

When you become a Tree Champion, you are claiming your place as a leader in our community, helping to make it a better place for generations to come. You are working towards our shared vision of a thriving workforce living on a healthy planet.

This is your opportunity to transform your values into reality.

Our Offerings to You

As a Tree Champion, your commitment to us is more than your financial gifts. You are our partner in this work, and we are so grateful. 

To express our gratitude, we offer these gifts to you. 

Special Tree Champions Gift

To thank you for your leadership-level commitment to our work, you’ll receive a set of wooden Tree Champion coasters, as an everyday reminder of your partnership with us.

Annual Meeting with Tree Trust’s CEO

Each year that you are a Tree Champion, join our CEO for lunch, coffee, or tea. You’ll have an opportunity to learn about the latest developments at Tree Trust and strategize about our work together.

Invitations to Special Events Just for Tree Champions

We’ll occasionally host events where you can visit a project site or other special location, learn more about how your gifts are transforming lives and landscapes and meet other Tree Champions.
