CVA Joins 1% for the Planet

Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) is proud to announce that we have joined 1% for the Planet as an environmental partner. This global network and movement comprises thousands of organisations that are supporting the planet.

1% for the Planet members commit to donating 1% of their annual profits to fund causes and nonprofits, like CVA, that help our planet and future generations thrive. These donations help provide much needed support for organisations like CVA to continue protecting and restoring the planet while empowering people to care for the Earth.

For business members of 1% for the Planet, we hope that you will consider supporting Conservation Volunteers Australia – helping us to restore and protect nature, build climate resilience, and empower people to care for the planet.

About 1% for the Planet: Supporting global environmental impact

1% for the Planet is a membership organisation that enables thousands of businesses worldwide to contribute a percentage of their annual profits to environmental organisations and causes that are doing good for the planet. 

It was founded in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, American environmentalist and philanthropist, known for donating his wealth to fund environmental causes.

To date, over 5200 business members of 1% for the Planet have helped contribute over $635 million dollars to environmental causes and charities around the world. That translates into an incredible amount of impact for the planet!

For mission-driven nonprofits like CVA, funding from businesses helps enable our projects and programs to thrive and scale, creating positive impacts for the health of our ecosystems, our people and our communities.

That includes powering our beach and river clean-ups, wetland restoration efforts, planting of shade forests for the climate, helping support threatened species and wildlife, and creating impactful advocacy and awareness-building campaigns for the environment. 

Australian business members that are actively contributing to environmental organisations through 1% for the Planet include Green Sheep Collective, KeepCup, Regeneration Projects, For Blue, The Conscious Store, Eat Your Water, Insure Gold Coast, Planet Earth Ventures, and Fancy Plants Australia.

Why we joined 1% for the Planet 

We believe that businesses can be a force for good and there are many leading examples of this. We also believe in the power of corporate partnerships and collaboration: our Partnerships for Impact are helping us to scale our impact and reach our ambitious goal of empowering another million actions for nature by 2030.

By joining 1% for the Planet as an Environmental Partner, we’ve been carefully vetted to align with their Planet Impact Areas. This helps make it easy for any 1% for the Planet business members to choose to support us through their donations. If you’re not a 1% for the Planet member and you want to donate to CVA, you can use our online donations form

Working for the benefit of the environment and people, environmental partners receive support through certified donations. In return, we acknowledge support with donation receipts and signed acknowledgement letters to ensure transparency and trust. This applies to both monetary and in-kind donations such as volunteering or provision of services.
