Foundations

NEEF thrives on the support of our foundation partnerships. Many NEEF program investments were launched by private foundations open to taking risks in starting new ventures.

We are very grateful for the ongoing, generous, and diverse support we receive through foundation partners. Though these partners, NEEF has:

  • Transformed the role of environmental education from K-12 only to reaching the 129 million Americans who we call the “moveable middle”—individuals who want to do the right thing for the environment but who are often confused by conflicting messages.
  • Developed a network of broadcast meteorologists who reach 90 million households with practical tips that people can use every day to save money and protect their health.
  • Produced energy efficiency content that is distributed in partnership with NBA Green to help more Americans take simple energy efficient actions in their own homes.
  • Provided thousands of classroom teachers and informal educators with tools and resources to place STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) subjects in an environmental context.

NEEF is committed to facilitating public-private partnerships to advance environmental education nationwide. Indeed, due to our congressional charter, NEEF is required to match private dollars to federal dollars it receives as a recipient of a congressional appropriation through the US Environmental Protection Agency.
