Welcome to the Newport News Green Foundation
The Newport News Green Foundation was established by resolution of the Newport News City Council in June 1998, and became a separately chartered nonprofit, charitable organization five months later. The organization of the Green Foundation was prompted by Council’s awareness that urban development had changed the appearance of the City to the extent that landscaping needed to be reintroduced along urban corridors as well as in green areas that had been established to enhance the quality of life of the citizens of the City.
Our mission is to promote the creation and preservation of green space throughout the City of Newport News through advocacy, acquisition, and assistance to others in order to make Newport News a more visually attractive place to live, work, and play.
