Announcing EENC’s New Donor Recognition Tiers



The EENC team owes every aspect of our success to the support of our donors: financial contributions directly drive our ability to offer professional learning opportunities, advocate for environmental education across North Carolina, host our annual conferences, and implement innovative projects with key partners to strengthen environmental education capacity nationwide.


In celebration of our donors, and just in time for the 2023 Annual Campaign, EENC is pleased to announce the development and publication of donor recognition tiers. All donors are added to our donors-only newsletter and listed in our Annual Report; at the below giving levels, donors are also eligible for all listed recognition opportunities.


Think of it as a thank you gift: from us, to you. We’re better together.
