The prime objective of Foundation LIFE Terra is: To stimulate citizens and companies to start planting trees at a massive scale against the effects of climate change and for the conservation of nature;

Fundraising: there are 3 sources of income a) grant from the LIFE programme (currently under review by the European Commission); b) large donations from companies wishing to compensate carbon emissions; and c) small donations from individual citizens and small companies with an interest to contribute to a solution against the negative effects of climate change.

Expenditures: the incoming funding will be used for the purchase of saplings, the compensation of volunteers guiding our reforestation events, ICT cost for the development of the LIFE Terra platform and overhead (personnel, travel, etc.).

Oversight: all income and expenditures will be closely monitored by the Foundation and its treasurer. For all transactions above €5.000 at least 2 board members will have to sign off, creating additional checks and balances. The annual accounts will be audited by an independent auditor and its summary published on this website.

Members of the board:
– Mr. Jeroen Haas (Chairman)
– Mr. Jurriaan Ruys (Treasurer)
– Mr. Sven Kallen (Secretary)

Board members do not receive any financial compensation for their work. There is currently no personnel working in the foundation.

ANBI-status currently requested.

Roll-out: upon approval of the LIFE grant the ICT platform will be developed. In the mean time the many requests for small and large scale reforestation projects will be serviced by our volunteers and professional “tree planters”. As of March 2020 we expect to have our donation page up & running. Social media presence is growing and will be used to alert citizens to the opportunity to join our events (for now in The Netherlands and Spain only) and recruit volunteers. For more information we invite all interested stakeholders to contact us here.
