Cellcom welcomes Green Gift applications from organizations dedicated to environmental sustainability and the preservation of our wildlife habitats. We also strongly encourage non-environmental organizations to submit a Green Gift application for projects or programs that focus on environmental stewardship or offer an innovative approach to education or addressing a community issue.

In 2018, Cellcom will award a grand total $44,200 in Green Gifts across the company’s service area. The application deadline is September 24 at noon.


Green Gifts are used to support organizations, programs and projects that:

  • Address a community-based issue that relates to the environment.
  • Focus on reducing negative impact on the environment.
  • Provide environmental education programs for children.
  • Provide educational opportunities for adults to learn about environmental sustainability, including training or leadership development.
  • Foster water conservation, protection of our air, landscape and water or wildlife preservation.

Cellcom makes one-year gifts and does not offer multi-year donations. A new Green Gift application must be submitted for each year a Green Gift is requested.

The application deadline is September 24 at noon. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered. Green Gift recipients will be notified by October 3, and funds will be dispersed by November 9, 2018.
