Thank you to everyone who donated to 100,000 Fruit Trees for El Salvador this year! With your support, we planted over 4,000 fruit trees with cooperatives, schools, women’s groups, municipalities and families throughout La Paz, El Salvador.
Attached in our 2018 Annual Report, which highlights our program outputs for the year, as well as the fact that for the eighth year in a row90 cents of every dollarwas spent on our life-sustaining tree-planting programs. Please take a look, and consider contributing towards 100,000 Fruit Trees for El Salvador before the year ends!
Have a very fruitful holiday season and a happy New Year!
We are so grateful for your support of our program to bring 100,000 fruit trees to the people of El Salvador. Over the past six years, we have been able to establish a nursery to grow thousands of fruit trees and plant and distribute those trees to schools, farmers, and families all across the country.
While at the moment our team is busy planting trees in other parts of the world, we are actively planning for year seven in El Salvador in 2019. We will continue our work to alliviate hunger, poor nutrition, deforestation, and poverty through the planting of fruit trees in this small, amazing, yet struggling nation.
Muchisimas gracias for your belief that fruit trees can be the answer to so many of El Salvador's pressing issues, and putting your faith in the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation to bring this program to those Salvadorans who need it the most.

To help celebrate the holidays, we are asking our friends and past donors to contribute towards our El Salvador project. We have an ever-growing list of cooperatives, farmers, families, and schools from an ever-increasing part of the country requesting fruit tree donations, and we need your help to meet this demand. We are entering the halfway mark to our 100,000 trees in 10-year goal, and it is critical that 2018 is a success!
For just $10/tree, you can give the holiday gift keeps on giving to Salvadoran families!
Thank you from all of us at the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation, and we wish you all a beautiful, bountiful holiday.
