Workplace Giving Opportunities

Ask your employer today if they have a Volunteer Match donation program or Volunteer Time Off (VTO). Every time you volunteer with Our City Forest, let your HR department know and we will receive a certain amount per hour you volunteer. Companies that participate include: Cisco, Apple, Applied Materials, LAM Research & Intel. 

EarthShare California (ESCA) is a non-profit federation of more than 100 environmental groups that work to protect natural resources and promote livable communities in the state of California. ESCA provides a simple way for donors to contribute to many environmental groups at once, including OUR CITY FOREST.  Donors can make a donation to the general fund, which is divided among all the member groups or, donors can choose to designate funds to one or more specific groups. Member organizations therefore receive both a share of contributions given to ESCA and designations specific to their group. 

Does your company participate in the annual giving campaign? Check with your HR department. If you work for the City of San José, Sunnyvale, or Santa Clara County check with your Combined Giving Campaign representative to learn how you can make an on-going donation to Our City Forest. 


Donating $5 per pay period ($130 annually) will pay for one 15-gallon tree to be planted for a person with a disability.
