If you are interested in a unique, meaningful way to commemorate a major life event or milestone, consider sponsoring an olive tree through My Olive Tree. Your gift of a tree will last for generations and be a true blessing to people in need in the Holy Land.
The land of Israel has an unbreakable bond with our lives here in America. People worship this relationship and have fought for its survival. Your gift of an olive tree can help to strengthen and preserve that relationship.
In addition to commemorating important events in your life and in American history, these trees help to raise money for some extremely important causes in Israel: specifically, sustainable agriculture in the country. Sponsoring an olive tree in Israel will help us to provide employment for Israeli families and funds for our humanitarian projects. Every year our farmers keep the proceeds of olive harvests as part of our efforts to rebuild the nation’s agricultural economy. Olives were once a major driving force of economy in the region, so this is a meaningful and symbolic way of helping to reclaim the past.
Additionally, My Olive Tree donates a minimum of 10 percent of all oil sales from olive tree sponsorships directly into humanitarian aid projects such as safe
houses, the Jerusalem Menorah and many others. With so many people in need throughout Israel and the Middle East, the importance of these humanitarian aid projects cannot be understated.
Best of all, while your tree may just be a one-time gift, it will keep giving back to the people of the region year after year, giving you a physical root in the Holy Land.
Here are a few of the most common reasons people tend to sponsor olive trees:
- Honoring the memory of a fallen soldier
- Commemorating a birth or a marriage
- Commemorating a graduation, christening, baptism or other major life event
- Helping to make the desert bloom once again
- Taking a stand against terrorism
- Sponsoring a living gift in honor of a mentor or elder

Our mission is to create a partnership between the Evangelical community and the nation of Israel; this partnership will produce employment, income, and revenue for humanitarian aid projects in Israel. We envision the planting of one-million olive trees over the next seven years. This relationship was prophesied in the Bible centuries ago, that the foreigners and strangers (those not of Jewish descent) would help rebuild the walls of Israel and cause the desert to bloom (Isa 35:1). Among other things, this reforestation is an environmental blessing for the entire region. May all who participate in this project be blessed body, soul and spirit; it is time for you to take root in Israel!
