Help restore landscapes, reproduce natural ecosystems and reduce carbon emissions whilst delivering high profits and exciting your community with our newest fundraiser – the Plant-A-Difference™ Fundraiser.
Fundraising can be just as successful with less impact on the environment. Plant-A-Difference raises funds for schools or community groups by encouraging donations that serve a dual purpose: fundraising and environmental conservation.
Plant-A-Difference spreads awareness about biodiversity and conservation, while also raising funds for schools and community groups. The Plant-A-Difference is the first Australian fundraiser to partner direct tree planting efforts with donations to a separate organisation.
Help restore landscapes, reproduce natural ecosystems and reduce carbon emissions whilst delivering high profits and exciting your community.
Leveraging care for the environment and the environmentally friendly resources provided by Plant-A-Difference, participants fundraise over a three to four-week period.
For every $15 that is raised, Plant-A-Difference plants one tree or shrub in one of the world’s 35 global biodiversity hotspots: the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor in Western Australia.
The more trees we plant the more carbon will be absorbed from the atmosphere, thereby reducing the negative impact of greenhouse gases on our climate and our environment.

Restore landscapes and reproduce natural ecosystems
The Plant-A-Difference Fundraiser’s sole purpose is biodiverse conservation planting using trees that are native to the region whilst raising profits for your organisation at the same time.
Tree planting with the Plant-A-Difference™ Fundraiser brings many valuable benefits to the environment such as:
Help reduce soil salinity,
Help combat wind and water erosion,
Enhance biodiversity, and
Restore habitat for native animals
It also directly contributes to the following United Nations’ Sustainable Development Global goals criteria:
Who Does The Planting?
We have partnered with Carbon Neutral, an award-winning carbon solutions provider and Australia’s largest biodiverse reforestation ‘carbon sink’ developer. They have planted over 440,000 trees and shrubs, restoring more than 300ha of cleared land. The site is independently monitored for health and survival.
Where Are They Planted?
Tree and shrub plantings are in the northern wheatbelt region of Southwest Australia, significantly one of only 35 global biodiversity hotspots. These are regions that have an exceptionally high number of plant and animal species found nowhere else in the world. The biodiversity hotspot label recognises that these plants, animals and ecosystems are at extreme risk of destruction.
The Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor was once vibrant with expansive woodlands of York gum and Salmon gum trees. But from the early 1900s, Europeans have cleared more than 97% of the vegetation so they could farm. Now, parts of the landscape are not suitable for traditional agriculture due to problem soils that are increasingly uneconomic to farm in a drying climate.
When Are The Trees Planted?
Large scale planting takes place each winter so that the trees and shrubs are given the best chance at survival.
