1% for the Tetons Membership
The 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. In three years, we have given out 27 grants totaling $372,000. A complete listing of these grants is available on our Grantees & Projects page.
- For your donation, you become a Member of both 1% for the Tetons and our sister organization, 1% for the Planet (1%P). You benefit from our marketing and branding efforts on our Members’ behalf, and you can use both organizations’ logos and other collateral 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. We ask only two things. One is that, if members do add a surcharge, it be both transparent and optional. The other is that, in all our members do, they comply with all applicable local, state, and federal rules and regulations.
