Case Study: A Corporate-Nonprofit Partnership Marries Environmental Awareness with Performing Arts

Nonprofit: Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts

Corporate Partner: Booz Allen Hamilton

Timeframe: 2007-ongoing


Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts
has a long history of eco-friendliness, supported largely by its partnership with the National Park Services, its active recycling programs and its subsidized shuttle service to reduce car traffic to and from its events.

However, in 2007, Wolf Trap’s president and CEO Terrence Jones initiated a new movement—“Go Green With Wolf Trap”—to elevate the organization’s green commitment under a unified sustainability effort that linked arts to the environment.
