The GreenGive is a local, environmentally-focused, online initiative designed to both raise funds and expand residents’ and businesses’ engagement with local environmental organizations, issues, projects and actions.

In 2017, its inaugural year, the GreenGive raised over $209,000 to support local efforts to restore the waterways of Anne Arundel County. This year, 12 organizations are banding together to make an even bigger impact to clean our local waterways. Join us on June 12th and 13th to support clean water in our own communities! Through an interactive online platform, you are invited to invest in clean water by donating to any of the GreenGive partners.  We are also working to provide a matching opportunity for donors so your donations will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000 per organization. This year, our goal is to raise $250,000.

Funds raised through the GreenGive will be used by the 12 GreenGive Partners to invest in actions that have a tangible impact on our own local waterways and quality of life. Every dollar raised will be turned into projects and programs that really do make a difference right here in Anne Arundel County. In a time when federal support and leadership is uncertain at best, we know that the fate of our local environment is in our own hands. We all love our Chesapeake Bay and consider it a national treasure. GreenGive organizations intend to make sure that the waterways that feed into the Bay are clean and ready for fishing, crabbing, swimming and boating. There is no better legacy we can leave the next generation.
