The Tax-deductible Climate Change Gift That Also Addresses Global Poverty

US$15.00 per tonne | 90% goes to projects | 100% U.S. tax-deductible

Carbon Offsets To Alleviate Poverty (COTAP) connects individuals’ carbon footprints with certified forestry projects in least-developed countries which create life-changing income for smallholder farmers who live on less than $2 per day.

Why Give COTAP as a Gift?

For someone who already has everything, what better gift than addressing their CO2 emissions while empowering the world’s poorest people? That’s a relevant, thoughtful, and meaningful gift to be given or received by anyone! It’s also quick, easy, and tax-deductible (for U.S. residents). A sample gift certificate can be seen here.
