Code Innovations launches Crowdrise Campaign Dec. 1st

The Guild is seeking support to expand The Code Innovations Database, a directory of exemplary green building projects. They are launching a social-networking backed fundraising project alongside 3 time Oscar nominated actor Edward Norton’s Crowdsource fundraising website “Crowdrise.” Their goal is simple: Make it Easier to Build Green.

The Northwest EcoBuilding Guild announced today they are launching a social-networking backed fundraising project alongside 3 time Oscar nominated actor Edward Norton’s Crowdsource fundraising website “Crowdrise.”  Their goal is simple:  Make it Easier to Build Green.

The Guild is seeking support to expand The Code Innovations Database, a directory of exemplary green building projects, blazing a sometimes difficult trail to make it possible for people to live and work today in buildings that are healthier, more sustainable, and energy efficient.   For more than 20 years, these EcoBuilding innovators have been pushing the envelope with new designs, materials and technology that make it easier to build green. Yet they still face an uphill climb and regulatory hurdles that can slow or even stop their best ideas from being adopted more broadly.

The fundraiser seeks to empower these innovators and “Make it Easier to Build Green,” by expanding and improving the resource to share innovators’ proven solutions with a national audience.  One of their main goals for the 2016 expansion is to put information on sustainable permitting precedents into the hands of every code official in the Northwest.

The NWEBG is excited to launch this effort as part of the Crowdrise Giving Tower Holiday Challenge on #GivingTuesday.  Crowdrise is the fastest growing, most innovative platform for charity fundraising, founded by legendary actor and green building advocate Ed Norton. Norton has testified in Congress about the urgent need for more healthy, energy efficient housing for low-income people. If the Guild’s fundraising team can raise the most money through donations during the Challenge between now and January 7th, they stand to win up to $100,000 in prize money for their project.
