Celebrating a $5 Million Grant Award From the Bezos Earth Fund

We have an exciting announcement! Eden Reforestation Projects (Eden) has received a grant of $5 million from the Bezos Earth Fund.

The Bezos Earth Fund grant will help Eden produce, plant, and protect native tree species in forests around the world by employing individuals within local villages destroyed by deforestation. The funding will be used to plant a minimum of 35 million trees and help scale Eden’s leadership and tree production capacity systems in Madagascar, Mozambique, and Kenya.

“We are deeply grateful to the Bezos Earth Fund, now the largest single supporter of our work in a single year,” said Eden’s Founder and CEO, Dr. Stephen Fitch. “This grant gives us a huge boost in the fulfillment of our mission, not only by planting trees but also by providing much-needed infrastructure enhancements to expand production and increase planting around the world.”
