Makers, Organizations, Entrepreneurs: Showcase Your Work at the Canopy Awards

The Sixth Annual Canopy Awards, our flagship fundraiser, is coming together, but we need you! Our silent auction is your opportunity to play a role in supporting your urban canopy.

Why should you consider making a donation to the silent auction?

Get exposure. You can brand yourself or your business as community and sustainability-minded. All donations are professionally displayed and you or your business’s name is listed alongside the item and in the evening’s program.

Receive a tax deduction. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law as a charitable contribution.

Feel good. Sharing is caring so when you donate, you can take great satisfaction in knowing that you did a good deed.

Help raise funds. When donated items are bid and won at the event, additional funds are raised to help Casey Trees plant and care for more trees across D.C.


To make your donation — you do not need to be in the D.C. area to donate — complete our online form, send us an email or call us at 202.833.9125. Donations made to the silent auction before March 25 will be listed in the event program.
