Here is a great story about how private corporations and non-profits work together. The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Program’s funding comes from private companies including Altria, Shell, CSX, Walmart and FedEx as well as federal agencies including the Environmental Protection Agency, the Natural Resources Conservation Service and the U.S. Forest Service.
In Richmond the Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund monies will fund an improvement project that not only provides educational outreach to the Church Hill area of Richmond ,but will also provide healthy food options for neighborhood families and a cleaner Chesapeake Bay.
It is a win-win-win.
