Your Dollars At Work

Greenbelt Alliance is almost entirely funded by our community of individual donors and philanthropic foundations. We put your dollars to work by advocating for good public policy and planning; providing expertise to decision-makers and elected officials; and rallying community support to ensure open space conservation and smart growth happens here in the Bay Area. Here’s a snapshot of our work last year. Read more about our impact in our annual report.

Each day, our staff:
  • Meet with elected officials and governing bodies to ensure they have accurate policy analysis and innovative research when making decisions.
  • Advise on and advocate for improvements as plans and policies evolve.
  • Rally residents to take action in the most impactful ways.
  • Publicly endorse good development and fight sprawl proposals.
  • Organize community groups and organizations for a unified voice.
  • Provide expertise on rules that govern where and how cities grow.
  • Attend regional and local community meetings to support conservation and smart growth.
  • Lead educational tours and events for residents and leaders to show them what is at stake if we don’t handle growth in the right way.
  • Write, email, call, and show up to influence public policies that can change the Bay Area forever.

Help us continue to shape how the Bay Area grows.
