In 2016, a Midwestern non-profit organization stayed true to their environmentally sound practices through a new building expansion project. The organization's leaders recognized an opportunity to lead by example and reinforce one of their key philanthropic priorities centered on the environment. Through sustainable design practices and water management strategies, including recycling water, they tripled their building’s size while reducing its environmental impact.
