קרן ירושלים ירוקה
 

אני גאה להציג בפניכם את קרן ירושלים ירוקה, ולהזמין אתכם לקרוא­ על הקרן, חבריה, מטרותיה, תחומי פעילותה ושותפינו לדרך.

קרן ירושלים ירוקה ממלאת חלל שמורגש שנים בירושלים, ומשקיעה הון כספי ואנושי במיזמים קהילתיים שמטרתם להפוך את ירושלים לעיר נקיה, ירוקה, בריאה והוגנת יותר עבור כל תושביה.

צוות המייסדים שחבר אלי בתהליך הקמת הקרן יודע היטב כי הפיכת ירושלים לעיר ירוקה יותר וקידום אחריות לפיתוח בר-קיימא בעיר הינם נושאים בעלי חשיבות רבה. נושאים אלו יבואו לידי ביטוי ע"י מעורבות אזרחית ומחויבות כספית מצד חברינו ותומכינו בירושלים ובעולם.

הצבת מטרות "ירוקות" עבור ירושלים תאפשר להתמודד עם בעיות הליבה העומדים בפני השכונות המוחלשות ותסייע בחיזוק עירנו.

תרומת החברות השנתית של חברי הקרן, המכונים  "בעלי עניין בירושלים",  מהווים מסד כספי איתן לקרן. מעבר לתרומתם הכספית, החברים גם ממלאים תפקיד פעיל בהתמודדות עם האתגרים הסביבתיים של ירושלים ובהכוונת משאבי הקרן בטיפול בהם.

אני מזמינה אתכם, תושבי ירושלים ואוהבי ירושלים ברחבי העולם, להצטרף אלינו בתהליך מרגש וחדשני זה ולהפוך גם אתם ל"בעלי עניין בירושלים.
