Every year, Grades of Green conducts an audit to track where the dollars donated to Grades of Green go. We strive to build trust with our donors by holding ourselves accountable with our finances. We are always to happy to share our findings, but we are particularly enthusiastic about this year’s report. The 2018 annual report shows that for every 1 dollar donated to Grades of Green, 86 cents goes directly into student programs.
What Does That Mean?
This means that 86% of all donations go DIRECTLY into programs that teach students- this includes the expansion of programs like our ongoing Waste Campaign. You can feel good about donating to our students as we help them fight environmental issues together. Click here to donate!
A Leader Returns
Younes, a Water Campaign alumni and Youth Environmental leadership Winner has returned for the 2018 Fall Water Campaign. Younes now leads his team of 34 students and counting in Morocco at George Washington Academy.
Last year, George Washington Academy’s Campaign Team fought to reduce plastic bottle usage at his school. The team conducted several activities, including a bottle drive, a taste-test competition between the school’s tap water versus bottled water, and hosted an environmental conference at the school to educate the entire school body about environmental issues and solutions.
Today, Younes met with Grades of Green Mentor, Jordan, to discuss the first steps of this year’s Water Campaign! With the team’s activism and enthusiasm, we foresee great things from the team and we can’t wait to find out their solutions and videos for this year!
