The 1% for the Tetons concept is simple: As a Member business, you donate one percent of your annual sales to 1% for the Tetons. 1% for the Tetons aggregates your donation with those of other Members, and funds projects furthering the long-term sustainability of the Tetons region. A sample listing of these grants is available here.
For your donation, you become a Member of both 1% for the Tetons and our sister organization, 1% for the Planet. You benefit from our marketing and branding efforts on our Members’ behalf, and you can use both organizations’ logos and other collateral material in your marketing efforts.
For tax purposes, you can treat your donation as either a marketing expense or charitable donation (ask your accountant which approach is right for you).
Because every business is different, 1% for the Tetons does not have a specific policy about how Members pay for their donation – some take it straight out of net profit; others raise prices; still others add a one percent surcharge. All are equally fine. Our only requirement is that, in all you do, you comply with all applicable local, state, and federal rules and regulations.
1% for the Tetons Members donate 1% of annual revenue to the 1% for the Tetons organization. We pool these funds to maximize the impact of Member donations. Each year, Members select where to direct their donation funds within a curated selection of local conservation projects.

To cover our operating costs, 1% for the Tetons also gratefully accepts donations, which can be made through our Donate page, or you can contact us directly. Thanks again for your interest. We look forward to welcoming you into our ever-growing 1% for the Tetons family!
