Hi! We are a group of 30+ students at Madison West High School committed to addressing environmental needs at West and our community. We are raising money to purchase 2 filtered water fountain systems to be implemented at West. 

These filtered water fountains provide numerous advantages over current ones. First, the filtered fountain system removes lead in water beyond certification standards, providing students with a safe, clean source of drinking water. Additionally, the visually appealing design and "Bottles Saved" ticker provides compelling motivation for students to avoid using plastic water bottles and replace them with reusable ones. Finally, these fountain systems are more energy-efficient than ones currently at West, significantly cutting the electricity bill in the process. A link to more information on these fountain systems is provided below.

Thanks to your generous support, we were able to fund the installation of 3 (!) filtered water fountains to provide students at Madison West High School with clean drinking water and promote a culture free of plastic waste.

Our next sustainability project is our partnership with Madison Metropolitan School District for a $50,000 rooftop solar panel array project, which the district has agreed to provide $25,000 in additional funding for. We are offering individuals and organizations the opportunity to adopt a panel under their name by funding the cost of an individual panel. More information about this project can be found at www.westgreenclub.org. For those interested in making a tax-deductible contribution, you can make a donation at https://app.mobilecause.com/vf/solar.

Thanks to all of your generous support, West Green Club was able to raise over $3,700 ($2,700 from individual contributions and $1,000 from a grant from the Madison4Kids community foundation) to purchase 3 filtered water fountains at West High School! The addition of these energy-efficient fountains will go a long way to reinforce Green Club's efforts to creating a sustainable, zero-waste environment at West High School and the greater local community. Keep following our future initiatives and endeavors at westgreenclub.org.
