Over the years, planners have evolved to accommodate the needs of anyone who gets their hands on them. Now, there is a wider range of planners that will help you keep your health in check, track down your expenses, and even get you into the right mindset before you kick off the week. 

Beyond organizing your life however, there are now local companies that help you contribute to valuable causes—and all you have to do is pick up a copy of their planners. We’ve put together a shortlist that not just keep your life in check, but also contribute to communities for the year to come.


Where To Next’s Planner 2020: Coming Home

For 2020, Where To Next will be highlighting what it means to come home through the stories of Clara Benin, Hannah Reyes Morales, and Javi Cang. The beautiful “planner with a purpose” holds a 2020/2021 calendar, dateless monthly spreads and weekly pages, bullet journal pages as well as tips on how to travel mindfully, a packing list for international rips, and even a bucket list. 

On top of that, Where To Next also donates its planner’s proceeds to Aeta communities. Five percent of every planner purchased will go towards their projects in Yangil and Botolan, Zambales.

Available at Where To Next, Fully Booked, National Book Store, and Powerbooks’s Araw-Araw Planner

As the name suggests, the Araw-Araw planner encourages people to pursue their passions one day at a time. The spreads help plot out your schedule for the day, month, and week and also features pages dedicated to passion projects and reflections, giving you a more balanced view of your year. Its pages are also made from rock paper—a waterproof, eco-friendly alternative to regular paper—and comes with an exclusive pen wrap and roll from Gouache Bags.

The best thing? For every planner purchased, the group also provides one planner to a beneficiary of InvestEd, an investment platform that helps underprivileged students to finish their studies.

The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf’s 2020 Giving Journal: Giving Grateful

The newest version of The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf’s Giving Journal focuses on courage, highlighting stories about people who chose to serve and stand up for the truth. Its planners no longer feature weekly grids in order to give users more space to write down tasks or notes for the week and the leather covers can now be detached and reused to cover other notebooks.

Proceeds from the Giving Journal will go towards the Real Life Foundation, which helps empower underprivileged youth through educational assistance, as well as programs on character formation and leadership development.
