Kentucky Gives Day, organized by Kentucky Nonprofit Network, is a 24-hour online fundraising event bringing charities and Kentuckians together for a powerful day of action by encouraging people to donate to their favorite charities.
Greensource’s goal is to raise as much money as possible in those 24 hours! The funds we raise will help us expand our environmental education efforts in area schools, enhance our environmental outreach in Central Kentucky communities, and further our mission to help people make small changes in their daily lives that have a big impact in our environment.
“Bluegrass Greensource makes a difference every day through our environmental education and outreach programs in local schools and communities,” said Amy Sohner, Executive Director of Bluegrass Greensource. “By encouraging people, no matter what their age, to make small changes, they can not only save the environment but also save a lot of money.”
One of our many success stories includes helping a school district save over $50,000 annually on its waste hauling costs. The school district has been so inspired that they have set a new goal to reduce their energy consumption by 20% by 2017. To put this in perspective, if they were 20% more efficient in 2013, this school district would have avoided paying $1.6 million in utility bills. This money could have gone toward providing salaries for more than 30 faculty or staff, purchasing over 1600 new computers, or building 7 new elementary school classrooms.
Beginning at midnight EDT on April 9th and continuing until 11:59pm EDT, you can visit our online donation page at http://kygives.razoo.com/story/Bggreensource and make your tax-deductible donation. All online donations made to Bluegrass Greensource on KY Gives Day will go directly to support our mission.
You CAN make a difference. Help the environment on April 9th!
