1% for the Planet, a global organization that accelerates smart environmental giving, recently announced that for the first time in the organization’s 15-year history it will offer an Individual Membership. Individuals can now join a global network by choosing to commit 1 percent of their annual salary or net worth to support the environmental issues they care about most.
Now individuals, like companies, have the opportunity to commit to change in a real and focused way. 1% for the Planet has harnessed the increased motivation to stand up for a cause and created a network that will validate each individual’s donation no matter the size. What may seem like a small gesture by a single person becomes amplified when part of a larger movement.
