SAN MATEO, Calif. —TreeRing, a technology company that offers high-quality yearbooks at affordable prices, today announced it will match $37,500 in donations to Trees for the Future as part of its matching gift campaign for Giving Tuesday on Nov. 30, 2021. This match will contribute a total of $75,000 to Trees for the Future to help further its mission to end hunger and poverty by training farmers to regenerate their land.
“This partnership is one more way our team can help make student experiences be even more impactful,” said Kevin Zerber, CEO and co-founder at TreeRing. “Through our one book printed, one tree planted model with Trees for the Future, we can help lay a sustainable foundation for future generations while preserving students’ memories in a yearbook that they will keep for a lifetime. With donations such as this, we’re collectively supporting farming families, while also providing more meals to children and more access to education and healthcare.”
TreeRing is the only matching gift campaign partner for Trees for the Future for this year’s event. Trees for the Future works with farmers to restore degraded landscapes through regenerative agriculture practices. Through farmer training, Trees for the Future is fighting hunger, poverty, and climate change. Zerber said his company chose to team up with this organization because they share a common goal of protecting our environment and providing sustainable solutions for future generations.
“With the holiday season right around the corner and industries of all sizes looking to participate in this year’s Giving Tuesday, we’re honored that TreeRing has committed to a matching gift campaign,” said John Leary, Executive Director at Trees for the Future. ”Not only does this type of gift mean hundreds of thousands of trees planted and many lives changed, a matching gift helps encourage others to give, making TreeRing’s support that much more impactful.”
TreeRing’s model is set up with sustainability in mind because it operates at zero cost to schools and only prints books parents/guardians decide to purchase. Schools often accumulate debt with traditional yearbook companies because they commonly insist on minimum order quantities and impose extra fees, leaving schools with extra yearbooks that are never purchased. The affordability, fundraising options and sustainability initiatives – for every yearbook sold, a tree is planted – TreeRing is an option for schools that not only want to preserve memories, but also include all students in an eco-friendly yearbook.
