Banner 2011 Matching Gift
Most trees in the urban environment live for decades, if not hundreds of years, and provide countless benefits that we all enjoy...but the cost of a tree is only $50 or $100 dollars.

Dear Friend of Canopy -

By now you have received our
mom and sonyear-end appeal, and if you've already responded with a gift to Canopy, thank you so much! 

If not, I'm following up with a friendly reminder - if you haven't had a chance yet to make a gift, and you are moved to do so, I'd like to encourage you to support our mission in the coming year.

All gifts dated Matching Grant Buttonbefore the 31st are tax-deductible for 2011, and through a Dean Witter Foundation challenge grant, all new and increased gifts to Canopy will be matched dollar-for-dollar! We hope you will consider a year-end gift to Canopy this December!

Among the many ways to support us, the simplest way is to click here to make a one-time donation, or mail your donation to Canopy, 3921 East Bayshore Road, Palo Alto, California, 94303.

Another wonderful way to express generosity to Canopy is to join our circle of monthly donors.

If you'd like to honor your friends and family for the holidays, or remember a loved one who's passed, give a Tree Gift in their name - their family will receive a beautiful card from Canopy to let them know you made a charitable donation in their honor.  Please click here send a Tree Gift to your loved ones.

However you choose to support

Giving to Canopy  

Beyond your appreciated donations, there are many ways to support Canopy:


Get your Gifts Matched   

A matching gift from your employer is a simple way to double your donation and Canopy's impact in our community.


Donated cars = tax deduction 

Thinking about selling your car, truck, RV, boat, or motorcycle? Call 877-676-tree (8733) to donate it to Canopy instead!  


Consider your IRA Rollover  

The tax bill signed by President Obama restores the IRA Rollover through this year. This means that taxpayers can make tax-free distributions to Canopy from individual retirement accounts (IRAs) through the end of 2011. 


Make a Planned Gift

Consider a planned gift to assure Canopy will continue to grow and sustain our urban forest for the next generations.
