Edgewater, MD, June 13, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- GreenGive is a new, 24-hour online fundraising and engagement-building initiative for 11 water-focused, environmental non-profits in Anne Arundel County. They aim to both raise funds and expand residents’ and businesses’ engagement with local environmental organizations, issues, projects and actions. It’s the first time that multiple environmental nonprofits have collaborated on such an event.
Ecotone concurs with GiveGreen’s approach at fostering collaboration to help organizations share resources and ideas, learn new approaches, engage others in their causes and coordinate actions across sectors to achieve high impact. Ecotone has donated $500 to support the water-focused, environmental non-profits that are part of the GreenGive initiative. These non-profits include the Annapolis Green, Back Creek Conservancy, Friends of Anne Arundel County, Our Creeks and Conservancy, St. Luke’s Restoration of Nature Project, Spa Creek Conservancy, Scenic Rivers Land Trust, Severn River Association, South River Federation, Watershed Stewards Academy and the West/Rhode Riverkeeper.
“We are challenging our supporters to recognize that the more we work together and the more we give, the more we will accomplish,” Suzanne Kilby Etgen, executive director of the Anne Arundel Watershed Stewards Academy, and a lead coordinator of GreenGive said. “Real change requires a true collective effort. We want our community members to become fully engaged in the great programs underway in Anne Arundel County to restore local waterways, ensure clean water, protect trails and lands, and establish Anne Arundel County as an exemplary urban watershed. We will be encouraging constituents to broaden their interests and become more engaged in all of our work.”
“We support the efforts of non-profits to restore ecological functions in Anne Arundel County and within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed,” said Scott McGill, CEO of Ecotone, Inc. “These grassroots efforts will help create awareness, raise funds and engage the community. To support GreenGive’s noble efforts, Ecotone has donated $500 to the environmental non-profits in Anne Arundel County.”
