Organization Description: 

GREEN LA Coalition was founded in 2005 to forge a partnership between the nonprofit sector and municipal government to share knowledge and implement pioneering environmental policies. The shared purpose of the coalition of 60-plus organizations is to advance improvements in resource conservation, alternative technology, urban greening, mass transit, and environmental health.

Grant Purpose: 

The Greater LA Water Campaign raises awareness about the water crisis in Southern California and promotes sustainable, local solutions.

The Foundation grant gives us the resources to educate the public, elected officials and members of the collaborative about water conservation measures that are urgently needed. We're grateful that The Foundation recognizes the critical nature of this issue and the importance of acting now for the benefit of our Los Angeles community.
