Fundraising can be just as successful with less impact on the environment. We’re excited to announce a world’s first fundraising initiative whereby schools and organisations can do their part in helping the planet whilst raising money at the same time.

Help restore landscapes, reproduce natural ecosystems and reduce carbon emissions whilst delivering high profits and exciting your community with the Plant-A-Difference™ Fundraiser.

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.

How it Works?

You fundraise. We do the planting!

Lead the way to a greener Australia and help plant native trees (and shrubs) in communities throughout the country. 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. 

Run the fundraiser over a 3-4-week period using the sponsorship forms supplied together with our online fundraising platform and for every $15 raised one native tree (or shrub) will be planted in one of only 35 global biodiversity hotspots. It’s sustainability fundraising at its best!

You’ll grow your fundraising goals like never before!

Australian Fundraising empowers our members to raise the greatest amount of money possible with a safe, positive online experience. It is of critical importance that we ensure the safety of children who use our online fundraising platforms.

We ensure photos of children do not appear online with reference to their name and organisation. Children can now create their own personalised avatar. With this in mind, we’ve implemented the best practice solution to benefit from online fundraising whilst keeping children safe online.

Restore Landscapes

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:

  • Sequester carbon,
  • 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.
