At Greenbelt Alliance, we work to make the places around the Bay Area we love sustainable, equitable, and welcoming to all.
2017 was a year of resilience. A year of resilient cities and towns, learning how to adapt and thrive in the face of challenges. A year of resilient families, coming together after the North Bay fires, determined to rebuild. And a year of resilient hope, as people like you responded to the federal administration’s determination to undermine land conservation and sustainable cities with a surge in support for Greenbelt Alliance. This support has bolstered our resolve to keep the Bay Area a special place. We’re honored to know that the Bay Area community believes in our ability to help the region grow into a brilliant beacon of what our country can be. I encourage you to read our Annual Report today to learn more about the work you made possible over this past year.2017 Annual Report
