My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Greenbelt Alliance, San Francisco, CA, USA
As a staff member, volunteer and later, a donor, I saw how Greenbelt Alliance worked both from the inside out and the outside in. As a staff member, I saw that Greenbelt Alliance leverages volunteers, community activists, and other partners to influence local policy while also creating a shared regional vision. It's amazing that such a small staff could create reports on region-wide smart growth and threats to the greenbelt while managing to turn out tens of people at local city council meetings. As a volunteer and donor, I experienced the great communication and real outlets for participation that Greenbelt Alliance provides to it's community. Greenbelt Alliance makes smart growth educational with city tours but also makes it fun with events such as Bluegrass for the Greenbelt.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the creation of affordable housing in oh-so-elite Palo Alto ;p (where I live)
