Plus many more

We haven't spoken directly with the charities listed here and have no connection with them. Most purchased a very expensive tree from a US manufacturer. We hope to change all that with our newly lauched product range, so look forward to hearing of our own clients success stories soon.

We would encourage you to speak to charities already operating this kind of fundraising scheme for the typical start-up and ongoing cost as well as the revenues generated.

What is a fundraising tree?

Fundraising trees, sometimes referred to as memory trees, are used by charities and other fund-raising groups to offer a tangible acknowledgement of a donor's contribution to their organisation.

The tree symbolises growth and endurance, qualities a charity can associate with and use to promote fundraising - an enduring legacy, with contributions growing the tree, if you will.

The tree is normally installed in a prominent position in an organisation's premises, both as an acknowledgement of the donation and as an encouragement for visitors to participate in the fund-raising scheme.

The shape of the tree is created using small engraved leaves, each bearing the details of the contributor or a dedication to someone helped or connected to the charity or fund-raising group. The tree starts bare of leaves, and added to as contributions are made, so it is an obvious way to measure success and generate enthusiasm both internally and with promotional work.

How much does a single tree raise in donations?

The tree is intended to generate income annually, with prices per leaf set by the individual charity. Different leaf colours can differentiate contributions in a mixed pricing scenario.

Our standard board has 114 leaves, with larger boards available containing up to 283 leaves. Let's use an example pricing structure to work out an annual income:

Board Size Number of leaves Average cost per leaf Total
Small 114 £120 £13,680
Standard 162 £150 £24,300
Large 219 £180 £39,420
Extra-large 283 £200 £56,600

Don't forget that you can have more than one tree. Use trees in each of your locations, and if you have the space, install several boards at a single site.

What's unique about our trees?

Our fund-raising trees are designed with edge-lit engraved acrylic for a truly eye-catching display. Our standard size is slightly wider than an average door so will fit almost anywhere.

The panel is simple to install and require no surface preparation or changes to your premises. They are self illuminating and require no additional lighting. We can take care of everything, from installation to the ongoing supply of engraved leaves.

Does it have to be a tree?

This is the first panel we've designed, and we've just launched our service. We can create panels and engraved plaques using other shapes, such as balloons, hearts, teddy bears or any other simple recognisable shape that you can imagine that might be meaningful to your organisation.

In fact, we invite you to come up with ideas. If we like your suggestion, we'll design it for no extra charge and add it to the list of products we already have, for the benefit of other fundraising groups.

What makes us different?

We are one of only a very few European suppliers of this kind of product, and the only one to let you know up-front how much it costs. We keep our pricing related to the costs of manufacture and not the anticipated revenue generated.

Take a tour of this site to find out what we offer, what we can do if you need it, and all technical details you'll need to consider when planning your project. If you need more information, use the contact details at the bottom of the page and we'll try to help.
