From school rooms to board rooms, we provide environmental science education and sustainability programs. We help business leaders engage in practices that respect the environment and give back to the community while positively affecting their bottom line. Our youth programs guide kids to experience firsthand the wonders of the outdoors and gain appreciation and respect for nature.
Our subsidized youth programs coax kids away from the TV and into the great outdoors. Participants improve their health, test scores, grade point averages, science literacy, problem solving and critical thinking. The Pikes Peak Sustainable Business Network is the primary clearing-house for measuring and supporting local business and organizational sustainability. We make the Pikes Peak Region an amazing place to live, work and play.
Thanks for giving us your birth year. There is a special matching grant available to the organization in each category that garners the most donations from folks in their 20's and 30's. One of the big focuses of this campaign is to encourage younger citizens to become more active donors.
When Give! ends at the stroke of midnight, December 31, 2012, our goal is to have raised more than $800,0000 -- that's $100,000 more than we raised last year. To help us on our way, generous local businesses, foundations and individuals have pledged more than a quarter million dollars in Matching Grants and Friendly Competition Awards for our 58 participating nonprofits.
