Green Festival is committed to supporting inspiring organizations and projects that educate and benefit their local communities with The Green Festival Community Award, a $5,000 grant awarded to a deserving non-profit, chosen by the public!
The Green Festival Community Award is a great way to gain exposure, support and resources for new or ongoing projects. Organizations get up close and personal with the community through extensive online outreach and social media recognition, and in person, as finalists meet and greet with Green Festival attendees to pitch their ideas. Projects must be locally-based, with creative ideas, measurable goals and a direct benefit to the local, sustainable community.
Voting for Los Angeles begins September 8.
Voting for Chicago begins October 20.
Voting for San Francisco begins November 10.
Winner benefits include:
How to Apply
