It’s Local. When you donate to the USGBC South Florida Chapter, you are helping your local communities. The educational programming we provide on a monthly basis from the Treasure Coast down through the Keys attracts local people who are concerned, just like you are, about sustainability, conservation and green building. They use that knowledge to improve the world around them, which means it improves your world, too! Our USGBC Chapter can provide that education because of the generosity of individuals and companies that sponsor programs and our nonprofit organization.
When it comes to advocacy, we are focused on the people and issues that mean the most to our area. We talk to mayors, city council members, planning boards, state representatives, school boards, principals, and more – all who can have an impact on where you live, work, learn and play. Our efforts are made possible because people like you and the companies you work for take the time to let us know what concerns them, and they back those efforts with their financial support.
It’s Inclusive. When you donate to the USGBC South Florida Chapter, you are helping create a sustainable future for generations to come. But it’s more than that.
Social equity is a tenant of our organization. We work to ensure that all people have clean air to breath and clean water to drink in their homes, schools, offices -- anywhere we live, work, learn and play. We believe that all individuals should experience the benefits that green building has to offer. We are concerned that the poor, disabled and disenfranchised have the same opportunities for a healthy environment that everyone does.
The themes are simple. Our kids deserve better. Where they learn matters. Your support can help us expand the USGBC's Green Schools program and Green Apple Day of Service to even more schools and communities. We partner with school boards, principals, teachers, teacher associations, student groups, students, parent organizations and parents to help them improve their surroundings through green-building and sustainability practices.
Not only that, we bolster the Science curriculum anywhere a Green Apple Day of Service takes place. Whether the project is setting up a vegetable or butterfly garden, removing trash from a playground, or reorganizing or re-designing a classroom, there are always teachable moments. Where can all the trash go? Why is it important to attract butterflies? How do bees help the vegetables grow? Why does using one paint over another make a difference? These teachable moments encourage and inspire curiosity. Action creates wonder. Teachers, parents and children work together to create an experience that makes learning easy and fun.
With your support, we can help even more.
It’s Balanced. When you donate to the USGBC South Florida Chapter, your donation supports an organization with a belief in the Triple Bottom Line.
Just like you, we are concerned about conservation and sustainability. And, just like you -- but unlike many other environmental organizations -- we don’t stop there. We are just as concerned about social and economic impact. We believe in a healthy and dynamic balance between environmental, social and economic prosperity. You can be assured that solutions are impactful, practical and feasible. Our actions are made with integrity and concern for the bigger picture.
The Triple Bottom Line is one way we distinguish ourselves from the organizations that do similar work. It’s one of many reasons why you should choose to support the USGBC South Florida Chapter.
