2011 Annual Report
O u r M i s s ion The mission of Faith in Place is to help people of all faiths understand that issues of ecology and economy— of care for Creation—are at the forefront of social justice. As we have grown and gathered support, we have moved from a mission of dialogue on environmental sustainability to interfaith action. Our partner congregations have emerged as a powerful group dedicated to making environmental stewardship a part of faith practice. With committed volunteers and generous individual and organizational giving, we have seen tremendous progress over the last year. Our congregations are inspiring each other in the areas of sustainable food, energy and water conservation and policy advocacy.
The Faith in Place network reaches across hundreds of congregations throughout Illinois—Baha’i, Buddhist, Running through the heart of our program areas is youth education. Engaging Christian, Hindu, Jewish, the youngest members to explore their relationship with the environment is an Muslim, Sikh, Unitarian important way to instill reverence for all Creation. Establishing a faith-based Universalist and Zoroastrian. perspective to their religious education helps inspire young people to become stewards of the planet. Faith in Place is grateful for the generous support that has helped us establish our unique role in integrating environmental stewardship into faith communities. Protecting the Earth and its resources is an important matter of faith. It takes willing and open hearts to become good stewards of Creation. We welcome your congregation to join us.

long time ago, when I first started working at what became Faith in Place, a very kind woman in a church basement told me to “write down the vision.” She was quoting scripture, and she was sure that the work we do was coming from a divine source. Her certainty and her kindness were divine, and I have never forgotten them. Now over 900 partner congregations live that vision every day. As we work together, we find that more have green teams than ever before and, more grow gardens of vegetables for their membership or for the local food pantry. More have had energy assessments or are planning ways to reduce their carbon footprints, have “bike-to-worship” days, and are using our new water curriculum, “Our Grandchildren’s Water.” More congregations are doing more than ever to practice their responsibility of stewardship for our beautiful planet. Every day more congregations and members are making the connection between the teachings of faith and practices of care and stewardship of our world. That’s our success story—your success story. Our vision going forward is to continue to build on our growing movement of environmental stewardship here in Illinois, which already touches more than 500,000 faithful congregants. Through our loyal and generous supporters and their work within their congregations, at home and in their communities, through faithful citizenship in support of our policy initiatives, and through generous financial support, we believe our vision will manifest.
“Every day more congregations and members are making the connection between the teachings of faith and practices of care and stewardship of our world.” Rev. Dr. Clare Butterfield Director
As we move into our second decade, one of healthy, continual growth, we must shift from reliance on the foundations that have helped us to start our work to greater reliance on the individuals and congregations who value and benefit from it. Loyal supporters like you have responded generously, nearly doubling our individual and congregational giving in three years. That shift must continue for us to make the transition from a start-up organization to a strong, reliable establishment that will continue to partner with you on the vision we share of a just and sustainable world. Thanks to your vital generosity, we know it will. In order to sustain beneficial growth for Faith in Place, we need the generous support of individuals and congregations who share in our vision of a sustainable world.
As you read our program outcomes for 2011 and see the significant impact of generous donors and volunteers, we invite you to celebrate with us. Almost thirteen years ago, I listened to that very kind woman and wrote down the vision. Now, just over the horizon, I am beginning to see it. In faith,

i n t e r fa i th power & light Through our Illinois Interfaith Power & Light campaign, we are helping congregations make energy conservation a part of their faith practices. We are working side by side with congregations to reduce energy and carbon emissions and switch to clean energy like solar panels, geothermal technology and wind power. At Faith in Place, we strive to help our congregations implement these changes at little or no cost. We have reached out to over 900 congregations throughout Illinois to help reduce their carbon footprints, and this year has brought astounding examples of interfaith action. Euclid Avenue United Methodist Church became our first partner congregation to undertake a complete geothermal
Stronger Congregations for a Sustainable World
retrofit for their heating and cooling system. Two years ago, the Mosque Foundation in Bridgeview became the first solar mosque in the country. Our summer partnership with ComEd helped 50 congregations receive free energy assessments, and 23 were able to proceed with recommended energysaving efforts. Faith in Place provides direction and resources as well as the education and training necessary to make these important changes a reality for our partners. Through projects large and small, Faith in Place is working to help faith communities make environmental stewardship a part of their faith practices. Tangible projects such as Big Green Workshops, From the Ground Up, worm
composting, community gardens, and “Bike to Worship” days strengthen congregations by actively engaging members. These successful activities will serve as practical examples to engage more congregations in the coming years. Energy conservation is the area where our faith communities are having the most success and progress. As we continue to grow the movement toward faithbased environmental stewardship, we look forward to expanding these programs and engaging more active volunteers. The successes of this past year are inspiring examples to others that the commitment to energy conservation can be a strong and functional element of faith.
“We’ve begun the process of our congregation becoming a green culture. Our decisions and focus have shifted—there is more emphasis on what is best for the community and the environment. Working with Faith in Place enabled us to measure our carbon footprint and find ways to reduce it. We enjoy working with them in these efforts, because they provide a clear theology that backs up sustainability. They have a great number of congregations working together, and it is a massive accomplishment to get so many people networked and really start to change the culture of the congregation. Our worship services are more creation-centered and there is a stronger connection between faith and values surrounding the environment.” Reverend Marti Scott Euclid Avenue United Methodist Church, Oak Park, IL

“The number of congregations together amplifies the voice of each.”

s u s ta i nab le agriculture Faith in Place has made sustainable food a significant part of our environmental mission. The goal of this program is to boost the supply of local food for urban people while renewing the rural economy of our state through a reinvigoration of smallscale food farming with sustainable methods. Our programs are designed to provide access to healthy food and to encourage the creation of community farms. The food that nourishes us is inextricably linked to our lives and our faiths. We believe that all people should have access to healthy, quality food. To achieve this goal, we supported winter farmers markets across the Chicago area. These off-season markets brought significant extra income to more than 30 farmers and provided increased access to local food for people throughout our faith-based Stronger Congregations for a Sustainable World
communities. For the first time in 2011, we were able to accept the Illinois LINK card at our markets, ensuring that income does not impede access to wholesome, nourishing food. Getting to know the individuals who grow the food that feeds us is one of the many benefits of small, local agriculture. We’ve developed close relationships with the farmers who vend our markets, and we encourage local congregations to do the same. By serving as drop-off sites for community-supported farms, congregations can provide their community members with access to local, sustainable products and support local agriculture. We take this commitment to local agriculture further by helping our partners to develop their own community gardens. This past year, St. Matthew
Lutheran Church in Urbana established a farm on its adjacent field. With the assistance of Faith in Place, the church was able raise start-up costs for the farm, which will have its first growing season in 2012. Their farm, Sola Gratia, will donate at least 10 percent of its fresh produce to the Eastern Illinois Food Bank and use the remainder to provide community-supported agriculture shares to the public. By providing resources, education and encouragement, we will continue adding new congregations to our list of community farms over the next year. With support and volunteers, we are helping our partner congregations recognize the value of sustainable food. This important program ensures that people throughout our communities have access to healthy food and promotes agriculture that has a gentler impact on our land and precious resources.
“Tomato Mountain Farm has committed to participating in every winter market Faith in Place has planned this year in Chicago and we feel very strongly about having them succeed. The people who come to them are generally thrilled at having a farmers market in the winter, and it’s good for our business. This year we’ve headed into new communities that haven’t had access before, communities that are geographically and denominationally diverse. At Tomato Mountain Farm, we are set up to offer shelf-stable products, so we were made for winter farmers markets. Now we no longer have an off season!” Robin Schirmer Tomato Mountain Farm Brooklyn, WI
â€œIntersection of global environmental issues and spirituality go beyond any socio-political boundaries.â€?
Advocacy At Faith in Place, we are building a movement toward faith-based environmental stewardship. As we gain support from over 900 congregations, we are able to bring this movement to a larger population through our policy advocacy work. The protection of the Earth and its precious resources is a concern that transcends all faiths and political boundaries, and our efforts are designed to amplify the voices of our congregations in lobbying for positive environmental policy in a way that is powerful, effective and respectful. Each year Faith in Place selects a small number of important policy issues to pursue. Our largest efforts this year focused on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, which is a process to excavate natural gas from reservoirs in subterranean rocks. Â This process, which is currently unregulated in Illinois, can lead Stronger Congregations for a Sustainable World
to dangerous groundwater contamination and air pollution, putting both people and the environment at risk. Faith in Place drafted a bill that would apply much-needed safeguards to the fracking process. We have worked tirelessly to push this bill through the Illinois House and Senate. We have already seen great success in passing the bill through the Senate, and it is now well-positioned to complete its journey toward becoming law. This was moved along greatly by the response to our annual Springfield Day, which has grown in number and strength over the past two years. With more than 60 people, we made up the largest contingent among organizations participating and were able to personally distribute materials to every member of the Illinois General Assembly.
Through our advocacy programs, we rely on dedicated volunteers to show that environmental policy is an important matter for all. We are working to increase the rights of citizens to protect themselves from environmental harm. Our proposal will allow citizens to file suit against agencies who have not acted to implement environmental regulations they are charged with enforcing. By providing resources, education and a network of enthusiastic partners, we can magnify our impact on environmental policy change. Our “Healing the Ecological Divide” event in June 2011 drew more than 100 participants to the Field Museum for a robust day-long conversation on environmental policy and its impact on communities of color. This group is more than ready to bring their congregations into a more active partnership in our advocacy efforts in the future. With their support, we are well on our way toward building a robust, diverse, inclusive and powerful collaboration to ensure that policy in Illinois protects the Earth and its people. Faith in Place is focused on bringing together people of all faiths to change their individual and congregational practices for environmental benefit. Through our advocacy efforts, the generous time and support of those who lend their voices to advance this important spiritual mission, our impact reaches far beyond our congregations.
When I first met Clare at Faith in Place, I didn’t see how social activism mattered to my congregation, but she showed me that it can be a spiritual path. Now, almost 10 years later, I have made this advocacy a part of my spiritual life. I discovered that no matter the religion, we need to manifest our values to the world. The first time I went to Springfield for an advocacy day, it was on a lark. But I found it fulfilling to be with people of all religions and faiths coming together in conversation. Often, faiths are at odds in the world, but here our different faiths lead us to work together to take care of God’s creation. Over the last two years, I have been advocating for the fracking bill, which relates directly to taking care of creation and not laying waste to the Earth. What’s inspiring is that our numbers have exponentially increased since I began and we now have people developing their own voices over time. Working with Faith in Place and the variety of people they bring together doesn’t make me doubt my faith, but rather deepens it and causes me to see the truth that others have in their own. It gives me more faith in humankind. Richard Pokorny Member Unity Temple Unitarian Universalist Congregation Oak Park, IL
“As residents of the Great Lakes states, we are stewards of 20 percent of the world’s available fresh water, and we are responsible for the quality of this water.”
water Each and every day, we use water to quench our thirst, to cook our food, to clean our clothes, our dishes and ourselves. It is the one resource sacred to our lives and to our faiths, yet we so often take it for granted. As our energy conservation programs continue to gain momentum, we now turn our attention and efforts to this fragile resource. We have promoted practices to conserve water inside our congregants’ buildings through fixtures and practices of care. Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation of Evanston implemented water efficient features in their new building that are projected to save 41 percent on water consumption over the life of the building. We’ve encouraged the incorporation of native plants and permeable surfaces outside of our houses of worship. Euclid Avenue United Methodist Church replaced their asphalt parking lot with a permeable surface that collects rainwater to prevent hazardous runoff, erosion and flooding while evenly dispersing water to the soil below. Stronger Congregations for a Sustainable World
We have created and distributed a new curriculum, “Our Grandchildren’s Water,” to commence a community dialogue about the role of water in our lives and the ethical implications of its use and distribution. In the first month of its release, we had a dozen congregations request the curriculum. Participating congregations will use this tool to challenge their communities through knowledge and action. Activities such as our “Two-Gallon Challenge” ask participants to not only conserve water but to understand its importance in their lives. This curriculum is the first step in helping to articulate a personal and collective understanding of the role of water in our world and the ways we can all conserve and protect this precious resource. With more resources, we can help implement additional water-saving techniques, including rain gardens and rain barrels, and water-conserving fixtures. As environmental stewards of the faith community, we look forward to the positive impact our congregations will have on protecting this pure and vital resource.

Invest i n g i n t h e F u t u r e Faith in Place strives to be a community-driven organization, both in impact and direction. This past year, we conducted a survey to learn about our membersâ€™ efforts in ecological stewardship as well as the tools and resources they need from us. As each congregation increases their stewardship efforts, Faith in Place looks forward to extending the scale and depth of our programs. We will address the need for more practice guides and tip sheets. As our water program gets off the ground, we will implement a green infrastructure pilot program, using congregations as construction and maintenance models for water management. A community-supported agriculture farm in Urbana will serve as an important model for this ecologically and economically sustainable new approach that we will encourage as a new kind of ministry for our congregations.
This yearâ€™s Youth Summer Program, in coordination with ComEd, will expand from 14 to 70 participants, and we will retain 15 students as year-round Eco Ambassadors. Cultivating youth leaders is a theme that runs through all of our programs and will be an important area for growth in the future. We have made great strides with our policy advocacy, and our strong relationships with our congregations will enable us to be a powerful force in affecting state policy. Together, Faith in Place and its congregations are a strong, positive partnership in faith-based environmental stewardship and we look forward to the increasing impact we will have in the years to come.
f i na n cial overview Faith in Place has grown significantly since its founding more than 13 years ago. This phenomenal growth has been facilitated by start-up capital from charitable foundations. While this kind of funding has been indispensable, to be sustainable, we must now raise a greater proportion of our budget needs from other sources. Thankfully, generous donors and congregations have increased their giving over the past year and the number of individual supporters has grown.Today, it is this generosity that allows us to achieve our common mission.
2011 Revenue Foundation Earned Income
Individual & Congregational
Our success this year has encouraged us to grow our programs so that they may reach even more people throughout our faith community. With your help, we can continue this important work in $750,000 communities across Illinois. When caring for creation, even the slightest change $500,000 can make a big impact. So too can even the smallest gift. If only 40 members of each of over 900 partner congregations donated $5 a month, it would cover $250,000 more than half our program costs. Through onetime donations, monthly gifts or gifts of stock, generous individuals can help Faith in Place bring $0 2009 about a sustainable future.
