There are many ways you can help The Charcoal Project help deliver better fuels, technologies, and policies to the billions of people worldwide that use wood, charcoal, and animal dung for cooking and heating.

Make a gift

This will give you an idea of what we could do with your donation.

  • A $25 gift can help switch a family from cooking using a traditional three stone fire to a safer and more energy efficient stove.

  • A $60 gift can purchase a press to start a fuel-briquette making business using sustainably-gathered agricultural waste or char dust.

  • A $100 gift will buy the seedlings necessary to plant 1,000 trees to be used by families as a sustainable source of fuel.

  • A $500 gift can buy a school or a hospital a clean cook stove that can dramatically cut down on fuel consumption and harmful emissions.

  • A $1,000 donation will allow 80 people to be trained in the craft of briquette making, helping to develop a strong, local industry.

  • Visit our Uganda Project to see how all these pieces might fit together.

What you need to know about giving to TCP

The Charcoal Project is a US-based not-for-profit organization registered in the State of New York and recognized by the IRS as a public charity (501c3). Your donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Please contact your accountant for details.

At TCP we have deliberately resisted investing in a brick and mortar presence. This means no costly office space, no utilities to pay, etc. Ultimately, what this all means is that your dollars go farther when you support TCP!

And don’t forget that your company may match your TCP donations!
