About this project
Tree Philly has set an audacious goal of planting 15,000 trees in the City of Philadelphia by the end of 2012. Will you help us reach that goal this Fall by donating to this project? The money raised for this project will go directly towards purchasing trees that are then given to Philadelphia's residents and business owners like you to plant across our city. When you pick up your two free trees that are paid for from this Citizinvestor project, Tree Philly will teach you how to plant and care for your tree, and in turn, our city.
Tree Philly is a tree planting initiative from Philadelphia Parks and Recreation in partnership with Wells Fargo and Fairmount Park Conservancy that directly engages Philadelphia property owners, business and neighborhood residents to improve their communites by planting and maintaining trees. More trees mean lower costs, safer communities and a better Philadelphia. Trees help keep homes and buildings cool during the summer and save on energy costs. They reduce runoff and flooding and increase property values. Specifically Tree Philly is looking to plant Flowering Dogwood, Crab Apple, Sweetbay Magnolia, Redbud, Sour Cherry, Sugar Maple, River Birch and Oak trees across the City of Philadelphia.
So what do you say? Will you help us reach our goal of planting 15,000 trees in Philadelphia this year? Please donate today!
How can I be certain that the municipality will use my money for a particular project?
We’ve got your back! Before any project is posted to Citizinvestor, our municipality partners agree that the money you invest into a specific project will only be used for that project.
Will my credit card be charged if a project doesn't meet 100% of its funding goal?
No! We require that a project be funded in full before any money changes hands. If a project is only 99% pledged once the deadline hits, nobody’s credit card gets charged, including yours.
When will my credit card be charged?
Your credit card will be charged the same day in which a project reaches 100% of its funding goal.
Is the money I invest in projects on Citizinvestor tax deductible?
Yes! Under 26 U.S.C. § 170(c)(1) of the tax code, contributions made to political subdivisions for exclusively public purposes are categorized as charitable contributions. However, with all tax matters, we recommend you consult with a CPA.
