Thank you to everyone who joined us for Rhythms for the Planet this past Friday, March 1st, at the Sunset Event Center! We had so much fun seeing you all and dancing to the great music of The 3 Twins Broadband. Your generosity helped us to raise funds for all of our community-based development projects. It is humbling to have your continued support over the past 15 years. We hope to see you next year!
Today is Colorado Gives Day, a special annual event where thousands of people support their favorite Colorado nonprofit organizations, like Trees, Water & People, through online giving! Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support families in Central America, Haiti, and on Native American reservations of the U.S. who are struggling with energy poverty. Your donation will help us provide solar heating, clean cookstoves, and solar lighting to people who do not have access to electricity. One small gift today can make a huge difference for a family in need!
When you make a generous donation today:
- 100% of your gift will go to Trees, Water & People (no credit card fees)
- The value of your donation will be increased by the FirstBank Incentive Fund
- There will be hourly opportunities for TWP to win $1,000 and $10,000 prizes

On August 17th, TWP and our partner organization, Asociación Hondureña para el Desarrollo (AHDESA), inaugurated the Renewable Energy Training and Demonstration Center in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The Center has been developed as part of our work with the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas’ (ECPA) Improving Access to Clean Energy in Latin America initiative. Since November 2011, TWP and AHDESA have been working as “Implementing Partners” with the ECPA to promote clean energy, low carbon development, and climate-resilient growth in Central America.
The new Renewable Energy Training & Demonstration Center is powered by a 2kW solar PV system and wind energy. In addition, AHDESA has all of the clean cookstove models that they produce on display as well as an array of Cleantech products that they sell to communities who lack access to the energy grid.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the event!

What an amazing night we had at the 2nd annual Rhythms for the Planet! Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate and support the communities we serve. See you next year!
Wow! We couldn’t have asked for a better turnout at this year’s Rhythms for the Planet fundraiser. Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support Trees, Water & People’s work; we couldn’t do this work without your generosity.
We would like to send some special thank yous out to our volunteers, interns, and sponsors who donated time, money, and in-kind donations to the event. We are always humbled by the outpouring of support from the Fort Collins business community and this year is no exception to that sentiment.
Stop by Brave New Wheel on Wednesday, December 14th, to celebrate Winter Bike to Work Day in Fort Collins!! We will have coffee and food waiting for you.
Every year Jam Cruise passengers and Positive Legacy donate funds to Trees, Water & People‘s projects to offset the miles they’ve traveled to get to the cruise, and the emissions from the cruise itself. Proceeds from this program go to funding reforestation work and cookstoves in Central America and Haiti. This year 100% of the funds will go to starting a tree nursery with Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods at their compost site in Northern Haiti.
