“A man has made at least a start on discovering the meaning of human life when he plants shade trees under which he knows full well he will never sit.”

Want to protect our natural resources? Consider it your legacy.

What could be more joyful than leaving a legacy through planned giving that perpetuates your values?

Sustainbility of our natural world through education

Trees For Tomorrow (TFT) has had an eye on education since 1945 beginning with our tree planting program and lanowner education. 

 

TFT's mission of promoting sustainable managment of our natural resources continues today! Our outdoor learning experiences place people in direct contact with the natural resources that support human needs, combined with teaching the knowledge and skills that lead to responsible lifestyle choices.

 

Every year TFT educates approximately 10,000 people through hands-on outdoor experiences. Sixty-percent of those are K12 school students through programs that focus on the interconnectivity of forests, wildlife, soils, and water including the role we all have in determining the health of our environment. 

 

As demand for natural resources increases, this environmental education is even more critical.

 

Every dollar raised is 15 more miinutes a student will spend outside exploring nature and learning about sustainable use of our natural resources. Your support allows opportunities for under-served populations to benefit from a TFT experience. Those committed to environmental education find Trees For Tomorrow an effective and efficient way to express their support. Each donation translates into increased services, programming and outreach to students.

Let us know about your legacy gift to be enrollrd in our TFT4All Legacy Society, a recognition society that honors and celebrates alumni and friends who have made a commitment to support Trees For Tomorrow through a planned, or deferred, gift. These future gifts contribute to the growth and success of of TFT, and they will benefit future generations of TFT students.
