Chicago Gateway Green was founded in 1986 on the belief that beauty and sustainability go hand in hand. Today, Chicago Gateway Green's projects help to improve the local environment and the quality of life for millions of Chicagoland residents and visitors.
Chicago Gateway Green improves Chicagoâ€™s communities through three key programs: the Expressway Partnership, transforming city roadways into landscaped parkways; the International Sculpture Program, beautifying gateways through the installation of public, international art on expressways; and the Tree Partnership Program, a large-scale tree planting initiative that transforms vacant land into tree-filled green spaces.
What new functionality we are looking for
Chicago Gateway Green is a community oriented organization. CGG could not fulfill its mission without the support of the Chicago business community and local residents. The website should accomplish two goals: reaching out to potential partners and providing information for those interested in making their lives greener and more sustainable. The staff at CGG has worked hard to create fun blog posts (as well as a Kids Corner!) and we're excited to share these resources with the world!
The website is also used to collect information and reach out to those interested in volunteering time or donating resources. It is used to communicate news, updates, and upcoming events to various stakeholders. The audience of the website includes board members, business owners and high-level management, volunteers, donors, local entertainers/celebrities/politicians, and the Chicago community.
How the new functionality will help
A new website will help Chicago Gateway Green fulfill our mission by finding vital supporters. Without sponsorships and volunteers, Chicago Gateway Green couldn't exist!
More recently, in order to fulfill our mission of greening and beautifying Chicago, Chicago Gateway Green has focused on education and outreach. We want to help people green their own lives. To accomplish this, CGG started a sustainability blog with three posts every week and we hope to promote this new resource through our website.
