Together we have accomplished so much to create a sustainable future for Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania over the past year!
Thanks to you and other caring supporters, this past year Green Building Alliance (GBA) has gained new commitments from owners of more than 40 buildings who pledge to dramatically reduce energy use and carbon emissions through our Pittsburgh 2030 District. We continue to foster a culture of sustainability in our K-12 schools through GBA’s Green & Healthy Schools Academy, empowering students, teachers, and administrators to build trust and work together to create healthy high-performing places to learn, work, and play. And our more than 100 Educational Events this year have provided unique learning, training, and networking opportunities, helping even more green building professionals in our region create more efficient, healthy spaces for everyone. You are the community at the heart and pulse of all this vital work!
You can bring even more positive change on issues that matter to you by making a contribution to GBA today. Your gift this fall will support our Inspire Speakers Series by ensuring that these inspiring talks by national and local leaders remain truly accessible for all in our communities. Each year, GBA gives away almost 600 complimentary and reduced-price tickets to community members. Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 to cover the cost of making sure we can continue to be truly equitable in these discussions of environmental responsibility, social justice, and economic development by making sure everyone who wishes to can attend the Inspire Speakers Series. A contribution of just $20 provides a seat at the table for someone in our community who might not otherwise be able to participate. Your support today creates real change to inspire and motivate your fellow citizens and leaders to think bigger and bolder about what is possible for our region.
We are tremendously grateful for support from GBA members and friends like you. Together we look forward to continuing to bring people together to find innovative solutions to critical issues in Western Pennsylvania and beyond. GBA does this important work because of you and others like you whose deep personal and professional efforts help keep our region on the cutting edge of sustainability. We hope we can count on your support.
