West Lafayette Go Greener Foundation

In 2018, Go Greener members recognized a need for alternative funding sources for Commission projects and initiatives to enhance sustainable environmental well-being for the West Lafayette community. The West Lafayette Go Greener Foundation was approved in 2018, securing non-profit status that enables the Commission to accept donations and apply for additional grants to improve West Lafayette.
