Forests Without Borders is a volunteer-run micro charity. We develop and manage grassroots projects with communities around the world. That means all proceeds from fundraising efforts go directly to the projects.

No overhead, no CEO's, no profit.


NEW! Trees of Celebration Program

The CIF-IFC wants to celebrate with you and provide a means to commemorate your life moment with the planting of a tree through our Trees of Celebration Program. Purchase a tree(s) today and contribute to providing a critical living legacy that will offer numerous benefits to the environment for current and future generations!

How does the program work?

  • Tree(s) purchased through the CIF-IFC’s Trees of Celebration Program will be planted in a Canadian province of your choosing.

  • Tree(s) can be purchased directly from the CIF-IFC website and online merchandise store. 

  • As a national non-profit organization and the voice of forest practitioners, the CIF-IFC is well positioned to help you celebrate your life milestone by working with tree planting partners across Canada who have the expertise and knowledge to ensure the right trees are planted in the right location for the right reasons. 

  • After purchasing your tree(s), you will receive a personalized tree e-certificate with the recipient’s name. You will also receive an email/notification of when and where the tree(s) is planted as well as the approximate tree planting location.

Where do the proceeds go?

Your purchase has an impact! A percentage of the proceeds from the total sales of each tree(s) will go to the following organizations:

  • Forests without Borders – a registered charity established by the CIF-IFC, working to protect, restore or improve forest landscapes for health, security, the economy and the environment nationally and internationally (learn more at:; 

  • Tree planting partners – the CIF-IFC works with organizations on-the-ground across Canada, who are dedicated to ensuring that all trees purchased through the program get planted; and

  • CIF-IFC – support for program administration and delivery as a not-for-profit organization.

UN International Days of Recognition

Forests Without Borders recognizes March 21st, the International Day of Forests as a time to appreciate forests as an integral part of life on Earth. We are committed to restoring degraded landscapes, increasing food security, and creating economic opportunities in communities we work with. 

This year, and every year, we celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd and #InvestInOurPlanet by planting trees in countries around the world. As a micro charity, our projects may be small but our impacts in communities are big! Find out how you can contribute to our ongoing projects. Thank you for your support.
