Help build a greener, healthier, and more climate resilient California

Help Grow California’s Tree Canopy!

Help grow a greener California that is cooler, healthier, and more equitable for all! Please donate today to support California ReLeaf and our Network of urban forest nonprofits planting, caring, and advocating for urban tree canopy across the state.

Donations will help support grant funding for tree plantings, educational programs and events, and grassroots efforts that protect, enhance, and grow urban tree canopy in California. We prioritize grant funding for underserved communities lacking sufficient tree cover and invite you to support the health of neighborhoods with the gift of trees! California ReLeaf is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Our Federal Tax Identification number is 90-0138904.
