At Once Gown Event, we believe in giving back. That's why we've chosen to donate a portion of our ticket sales to a non-profit organization dedicated to changing lives around the world. 

Their Mission: 

Plant With Purpose, a Christian nonprofit organization, reverses deforestation and poverty around the world by transforming the lives of the rural poor.

Their Methods: 


Plant With Purpose is equipping farmers to get at the literal roots of poverty through reforestation and sustainable farming techniques. By restoring their land, farmers are producing more food to put on the table and more income to provide for household needs.


Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSLA) provide a financial safety net. This sustainable form of microfinance trains groups of 20 to 30 individuals to work together to save their own money and then make loans to group members to develop small businesses, invest in their farms, send their children to school, and more. 


Plant With Purpose invests in the whole person through partnerships with local churches. We believe that local churches best understand the needs of their communities and can lead the way in creating change.
