1% for the Planet

Community Foundations of Canada (CFC) has a formal partnership with 1% for the Planet to jointly engage local businesses in environmental philanthropy. An alliance of businesses, 1% for the Planet is committed to leveraging its resources to create a healthier planet. The alliance aims to show that taking environmental responsibility is good for business.

Members of 1% for the Planet recognize their responsibility to – and dependence on – a healthy environment by donating at least 1% of their revenues or sales annually to environmental organizations. The partnership between community foundations and 1% for the Planet is unique because it gives businesses an innovative and highly visible way to positively affect the environment through donations to a local foundation's environmental endowment fund and/or to charitable groups working in the environmental sector.

The Victoria Foundation is one of the community foundations across Canada committed to actively promoting 1% for the Planet.
