In Our Own Words...Why We Give

At KAEE, our Board of Directors gives to the organization their time, energy, passion, ideas, and gifts. Why? Here's what they had to say.


"I care about environmental education because it serves as a key to appreciating natural systems, and informs and give us the courage to take action on environmental issues impacting us all." -Jennifer Hubbard-Sánchez


"KAEE supports those individuals and programs that promote environmental education. Just like it takes a village to raise a child, it takes an organization to support a common good." -Rae McEntyre


"I give to KAEE because the work is important, the people are passionate and dedicated, and the impact is great. KAEE is an excellent steward, both of my money and of the environment." -Jennifer Beach


"I care about Environmental Education because it connects people to nature, which can be transformative. EE also helps develop skills to care for and advocate for our home, planet earth, which in turn benefits all life, including future generations." -Jackie Gallimore


"Caring about our impact on the natural world begins with curiosity. EE professional developments have led me into coal mines, power plants, caves, and creeks. Then, I pay that curiosity forward to those I teach." -Vivian Bowles


"I support KAEE because education is the foundation for building a better tomorrow." -Jason Nally
