Saving the planet, one tree at a time. The Plant A Tree Today (PATT) Foundation was formed in 2005 with its mission to react to problems caused by the massive and increasing levels of deforestation worldwide, raise awareness of environmental issues and the role forests play, campaign for better practices, take action against climate change, educate children on these issues, support community development projects centered on tree planting and reforestation in Thailand, and to PLANT MORE TREES.
PATT Foundation is a registered UK charity and a Thai foundation working primarily within Asia to reach a goal of planting 1 million trees. Currently they have planted 894,235 trees!
Why plant trees?
Trees have been shown to assist with the removal of carbon dioxide (a key greenhouse gas) from the atmosphere and store it in the trunk, leaves, roots and soil. Furthermore the addition of tree to a degraded landscape also helps to reduce soil erosion, helps with water conservation, increases biodiversity and provides habitat for wildlife. Tree planting projects also provide livelihoods for communities in developing countries.
The following points provide the framework for PATT's work:
- We believe that by creating the right partnerships we can implement valuable initiatives on the ground that make a concrete difference to the environment, livelihoods and the environmental education of children.
- We recognise that children represent the future of our planet and educating them on the environment is therefore critical to building a better future.
- Trees have the power to change lives. Planting the right trees in the right projects can bring economic sustainability to poor rural communities, as well as provide significant environmental benefits.
- Climate change is the biggest challenge facing our world. It is critical to raise awareness of this issue, provide education around it, and encourage individuals and businesses to take action on it.

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
