Show your support for ECOSS this holiday season!
The holidays are upon us – the season of giving, of community, and of celebration. This year we are asking you to please consider ECOSS when you are making your year-end gifts. Or, make the decision to donate to ECOSS for the very first time. Whatever contribution you choose to make will be put toward providing high quality and innovative education as well as technical assistance programs to diverse businesses and communities in the Puget Sound region.
Listed below are some of our 2010 accomplishments we’re pleased to share with you:
- We launched our work Powerful Neighborhoods program with Seattle City Light. This program offers free installation of energy efficient and water saving fixtures to low-income, elderly and non-English speaking families in South Seattle.
- Our team has helped over 3,000 families save nearly 9,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide, and saved customers over $1,000,000 in energy costs. This program has been so successful it was written up in The New York Times.
- We hired 17 employees from 11 countries to carry out the Powerful Neighborhoods program. Added to our long time multi-cultural outreach team, ECOSS is now conducting outreach in 18 languages!
- ECOSS launched a series of stormwater management workshops, being offered across the state. These valuable courses provide business owners practical solutions to addressing new stormwater permit requirements and prevent pollution.
Generous contributions from people like you made all of this possible in 2010!
Please donate or send your check to ECOSS at 605 S. Riverside Dr. Seattle, WA 98108.
Why ECOSS? Why Right Now?
ECOSS does a lot of work, has many programs, and offers a wide variety of resources and services. We know it can be difficult to describe just what we do around here, and we think this video helps do just that. Please take a moment and see for yourself all the ways ECOSS is helping in the community and the environment. Watch the ECOSS video, Opening Doors.
Because ECOSS is a 501(c)3 organization, donations are fully tax deductible. As you do your year-end giving and tax planning, we hope you will consider making good use of the income tax charitable deduction. Your year-end gift can significantly reduce your income taxes while providing meaningful support for ECOSS! Win-win!
We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and has plans for a memorable and exciting December. We are grateful for our members, donors, supporters and everyone interested in and working toward creating a cleaner, healthier, economically thriving Puget Sound. THANK YOU!
