Jason Nugent Photography Announces Membership with 1% for the Planet
FREDERICTON, NEW BRUNSWICK, OCTOBER 2ND, 2018 — Jason Nugent Photography joined 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of annual sales to support nonprofit organizations focused on the environment.
“Our member companies have donated more than $175 million to our environmental nonprofit partners to date. Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 3% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of member businesses is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes. Our members lead with purpose and commitment, characteristics that consumers support. We’re excited to welcome Jason Nugent Photography to our global network,” says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
“As a creative who depends on the well-being of the natural world to generate compelling work for my clients, I’m thrilled about this next step and looking forward to contributing to this important cause.”
Members of 1% for the Planet contribute one percent of annual sales directly to any of the approved nonprofit environmental organizations in the network. Nonprofits are approved based on referrals, track record and environmental focus. Thousands of nonprofits worldwide are currently approved.
