"Our partnership with Southface was unique because Southface provided education along with the financial assistance to make the necessary efficiency changes within our organization. With financial resources, Southface provided the "how" we could make changes, but they also explained "why" we needed to make those changes, which we then passed on to our thousands of young Club members."

Your support enables Southface to launch and lead important initiatives across the sustainability spectrum—bold programs made possible through the generosity of our donors. Become a member today!


Southface promotes sustainable homes, workplaces and communities through education, research, advocacy and technical assistance.
