Our Supporters

As a grassroots community organization, Urban Tree Connection relies on the partnership of individuals and groups across the Greater Philadelphia area to help us fulfill our mission. These critical partnerships take many forms, including volunteering, financial and in-kind donations, and direct collaboration on community programs. Among the supporters we would like to acknowledge are:


Over the years we have had nearly 1000 volunteers annually support our operations at UTC. We appreciate all of volunteers from local high schools, colleges and universities, a broad range of faith based organizations, corporate entities, and other community-based organizations throughout the city. We especially appreciate all of the efforts and hours of volunteership our local neighbors in Haddington and in surrounding neighborhoods provide – from working at the farm, to cleaning up the community gardens, to helping cook meals for community events. Our community-based volunteers are the glue that holds the work together!
