Where does your donation actually GO?


You probably know that when you make a gift to KAEE, you’re helping us achieve our vision of a sustainable world where environmental and social responsibility drive individual and institutional choices. But where exactly does your donation go?

  • Donations to KAEE are used to offer professional development workshops and online learning opportunities for formal and nonformal educators so they can lead lessons that are relevant, engaging, and nationally recognized.

  • Gifts help us connect with and prepare teachers to lead EE field trips like the one pictured below, where we worked with Jefferson County Public School to facilitate Project WET activities for 120 middle school students. (Many of them told us it was their first time ever being in a creek, and many of them didn’t want to leave!)

  • Your support allows us to offer discounts, stipends, scholarships, and other financial assistance so that cost is not a barrier for educators to participate in our programs.

  • They also support the day-to-day operations at KAEE, helping our small but mighty team develop and manage programs, workshops, region-wide initiatives, advocacy efforts, essential partnerships, and so much more.

  • Your gift ensures that KAEE can continue to grow and broaden our reach, so that we ensure that access to environmental education and the outdoors is something all Kentuckians receive.

This giving season, we invite you to make a donation so we can continue to do all this and more, together.
