Your Investment in CELF is an Investment in a Sustainable Future
View our 2016 Highlights
Today’s students must prepare for a world vastly challenged by environmental, economic and social change. CELF‘s mission is to ensure that students get the education they need to create a sustainable future. We are a pioneer in sustainability education, helping schools and school districts develop engaging, results-oriented programs.
In order to keep our programs accessible to all K-12 schools, the fees we charge to schools and teachers cover only a fraction of the total program delivery costs. We count on support of individuals, foundations and corporations to cover full expenses of our high-touch program delivery.
Since its inception, CELF has worked with more 8,000 teachers and school leaders and more than 800,000 students from 2,800 schools. But we know that this is just the beginning of our work to bring systemic change to K-12 education.
Your financial support is essential to help bring to schools and communities programming that fosters environmental literacy and promotes sustainability education as an integral part of K-12 learning.
