Collective Action

Join Us! We find value in sharing best practices, replicating successful models, and addressing field-wide barriers through collaboration.

EEFC provides a venue for collaborative giving to emerge by exchanging ideas and thinking strategically about the issues impacting local youth and the organizations that serve them. For example, after learning of the barrier presented by transportation, many EEFC members pooled resources to create the Transportation Fund that now underwrites transportation for school field trips to outdoor and environmental education providers across the region, making these programs available to youth who would otherwise not have these opportunities. 

While these opt-in activities fall outside of the EEFC budget, they are made possible by EEFC’s knowledge sharing strategy.
