Through Adopt-A-Rainforest, individuals, school groups and other organizations contribute funding to small conservation groups in tropical countries that work to stop rainforest destruction. Donations to the Adopt-A-Rainforest projects support the purchase and sustainable management of tropical forest lands.
Donors may choose to support a particular project in a country of interest, or they may ask the Rainforest Alliance to select one in need. Many people make donations to Adopt-A-Rainforest on behalf of loved ones, to celebrate weddings, birthdays and holidays, or in memoriam.
Donors often design and stage creative fundraising events that help publicize the work of their chosen Adopt-A-Rainforest project, raising awareness in their communities about the importance of rainforests. For ideas, check out some of our donor success stories.
Because many donors are kids or teachers, the Rainforest Alliance offers free educational materials featuring the Adopt-A-Rainforest projects. Check out the Rainforest Alliance Learning Site for multidisciplinary curricula containing stories, lesson plans, presentations and everything teachers need to connect their students to the conservation projects supported by Adopt-A-Rainforest donations.
After you have raised money to donate to Adopt-A-Rainforest, you can either fill out and mail the donation form or donate online. As a small token of appreciation, you will be emailed a printable Rainforest Alliance certificate. Remember even a small amount of money can go a long way!
