Sustainable Giving Campaign 

The Sustainable Giving Campaign is an annual one-week fundraising campaign for local nonprofit organizations which are working to build a more sustainable future. In 2019 we were able to fundraise over $8,000 for the Baltimore Tree Trust. Thank you so much to all our donors! 







  • Trust: Our local nonprofit recipients are carefully vetted organizations creating efficient change. 

  • Impact: Our collective gift enables immediate programming and action we couldn't inspire individually.

  • Value: Administrative work for the campaign is volunteered, no fees are taken. 

  • Ease: One online donation, without being added to a mailing list, with no extra work. 

  • Intent: Setting aside funds to give annually is better than lump-sum and surprise donations. 

The Sustainable Giving Campaign hopes to promote sustainability in two ways: by funding local community-building and environmental work and by encouraging our donors to think about giving annually and regularly. Our hope is that our donors eventually consider giving a percentage of their annual income to nonprofit organizations every year. Giving a percentage of income helps people be more generous during good financial times and also allows people to feel less pressured when they don't have as much financially. To help fund the annual gifts Ben Tipper has pledged to give 5% of his total annual income to the campaign. With your help we were able to raise $6,150 in 2017,$6,085 in 2018, and $8,216 all going directly to Baltimore nonprofits working to build a more sustainable future. $20,451 total since 2017! Thank you!
