TOD: Neighborhood

Upper Green Side

Upper Green Side has grown over the past year and a half from a handful of local activists that I rallied together to start a few local food greenmarkets in the heart of the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Along the way, I learned quite a bit about how to become a neighborhood activist, work together with the local community board and build relationships with elected officials.

Now I'm proud to announce that less than a year and a half since founding a Upper Green Side, we are now an official 501c3 non-profit organization and can receive tax-deductible donations.

Upper Green Side is a non-profit organization that promotes awareness and action on local environmental issues in the Upper East & Upper West Sides of Manhattan involving sustainable food, clean transportation, energy efficiency, and waste reduction. We are building a healthy community and environment for our own well-being and generations to come.

This is a very exciting time for us as we will be planning our activities and securing different funding sources, but we plan that the bulk of our funds will come from private individuals at first.

While we don't have an easy online donation mechanism set-up yet, we are taking personal checks now at our PO BOX. Please send what can to us at:

Hi Glenn,

For an inexpensive and easy to use online
donation tool you can use these guys:

At the low end, it will cost about $30/month plus
a reasonable transaction fee (%). I've used them
several times to help not-for-profit organizations
I've worked with.

Good luck. Xokiawitl
