The holiday season is upon us, including the season of giving to charitable organizations. I hope you will support the Coalition for Smarter Growth, the most influential smart growth group in the Washington region.

Their work is critical to creating, maintaining, and improving vibrant, walkable, and transit-rich neighborhoods throughout the Washington region. That’s why I serve on their board of advisors and regularly contribute to their campaigns.

I hope you will consider supporting the Coalition for Smarter Growth with a $100 sponsorship of their 2013 campaign or whatever you can afford.

Please click here to sponsor the Coalition for Smarter Growth’s 2013 campaign.

Your support can have a big impact and help to make a great region even greater.

With your contribution, you can personally help to make sure the Coalition for Smarter Growth keeps working on key projects like:

  • Fighting for new transit investments throughout the region;
  • Organizing to support good transit-oriented development;,
  • Stopping sprawl-inducing, retrograde highway projects;
  • Building networks of engaged residents to form a unified voice for policies that prioritize the creation of more livable, walkable communities.


Your dollars will speak loudly, adding to momentum across the region for a balance of transportation choices, from Capital Bikeshare to improved Metro and bus service. Your dollars will also help create more walkable neighborhoods where a car is just one of many ways to get to the grocery store, the library or the park.

Can you contribute a $100 sponsorship or whatever you feel is appropriate for the Coalition for Smarter Growth’s 2013 work?
