Greensburg GreenTown is a nonprofit organization established to provide the residents of Greensburg, Kansas with the resources, information and support they have needed to rebuild the town as a model green community following the May 2007 tornado. Programs undertaken by Greensburg GreenTown are in service to the mission of supporting residents in their efforts to rebuild Greensburg as a model green community, and to inspire and educate the world to build sustainably and live green. While GreenTown is a private nonprofit, it has an official relationship with the City of Greensburg.
Funding is essential to Greensburg GreenTown’s operation and we have been great stewards of our donor support over the last 5 years. We have helped craft a vision for Greensburg as a model for sustainability, helped frame issues of sustainability and the environment in a non-political way, and encourage and support individuals, businesses and municipalities in Greensburg to build optimally green. We have played a major role in helping the Green Initiative get visibility in the media, provided tours and built relationships with individual and groups coming to town and helped harness hundreds of thousands of dollars of volunteer work and in-kind contributions. All of this has been a vital part of the extraordinary comeback of the town as both an international beacon of hope and a practical model of what is possible in building in an environmentally friendly way. Check out our great website for more details on what we do.
As a community showcasing cutting-edge technologies and practices, and an international focal point of sustainable building, Greensburg offers members an opportunity to champion green living and the innovative efforts of this small town with a big heart. You also are leaving your mark on a project that will last lifetimes, and continue to change our world for the better. Thank you for your support!
