Causes

Our platform offers carefully selected and vetted sustainability (eco) causes. See below for further details on our guidelines for accepting cause foundations to the EcoMatcher platform.

 

If your company is already supporting a sustainability cause, and you would like to make better use of that cause by using the features provided by our platform, such as TreeTracker, please contact us.

We can help to “digitise” your cause into “cause units” and use those for corporate gifting  or specific loyalty programs that you may want to set up.

 

By doing so, your company is not only doing good, but you would also enable your company to share this with your customers and employees to enhance loyalty and employee engagement.

Trees4Trees is an Indonesian non-profit that empowers local communities through partnership reforestation initiatives. By increasing the area of community planted and owned forests, livelihood assets are created, the negative effects of deforestation are reduced and the environment is renewed.

 

Adopting trees helps to finance the operation of Trees4Trees who will grow high-quality tree seedlings in their tree nurseries. They then donate the trees to the farmers. In the end, the farmer takes care of the tree and owns it.

Fostering Education & Environment for Development (FEED) is a non-profit and non-governmental organization registered with the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission.

FEED does all this through integrated social forestry programs, community development, and research in partnership with the University of the Philippines based in Los Baños.

Information For Causes

By availing your cause to companies, our objective is to maximize your funding possibilities—while offering companies a meaningful alternative for corporate gifting with your cause.

 

We have defined some criteria guidelines and questions for accepting cause foundations to the EcoMatcher platform:

 

  • Your organization must be active in sustainability (eco) causes.
  • A track record of at least 3 years is required.
  • Causes must be available in ‘cause units’ such as a newly planted tree.
  • ‘Cause units’ need to have Global Positioning System (GPS) location data in order to fully make use of EcoMatcher’s ‘Cause Tracker’ web application. Providing this transparency helps to increase funding!
  • How many ‘cause units’ are you able to offer? This helps us to better understand how ‘scalable’ your business is.
  • In order to fully make use of the platform, we will need some digital media input from your organization such as high-resolution logos, photos and videos.
  • Your organization must successfully complete our assessment questionnaire. For details, please click here.

 

If you have any questions on these guidelines or would like to be featured and listed with your foundation, please contact us at: contact@ecomatcher.com.
