Why support Carmel Green Initiative? We are fiscally conservative and work very hard to limit our expenses. However, to remain sustainable, we need your financial support. Your contribution will enable CGI to continue "greening" our community. Currently, we are supporting city-wide recycling, providing network and education opportunities to green teams at our schools and congregations, and keeping you informed of green happenings around Carmel. You can make a difference with your financial support. We recognize that your gift is not only a monetary contribution, but also represents the gift of trust. We value your confidence and pledge to use your gift efficiently to build a more sustainable community.
