Your Donation’s Impact
This year we were able to offer 1000s of young people nature-based learning opportunities in parks and natural areas throughout Greater Rochester. We also engaged 100s of our neighbors in a variety of community building activities.
We were able to do this thanks to generous donors like you.
Please consider giving any amount to support our nature-based learning and community giving efforts.
$10.00 covers the cost of a pair of winter gloves for one student.
$30.00 supports one hour of at school lesson support from a nature-based learning educator.
$120.00 makes one hour of time in the park possible for a class.
$2400.00 makes an entire day of learning in the park possible for a grade.
Your Donation Helps Us Grow Sustainably
Our Current Fundraising Priorities
Rochester Ecology Partners has reached an exciting stage in its growth where we have plenty of evidence our programs are wanted and working but we need help getting to the next stage in our organizational development. Your donation will help make the following possible:
1. Growing our staff. We have a lot of work to do and we have gone from a volunteer team to eight paid employees in just a short time. We need to further develop the staff we have and add new people to the team to expand our capacity to achieve our mission.

2. Developing our organizational operations. Our recent project to understand the challenges environmental organizations face revealed that many organizations need support with basic organizational needs. Rochester Ecology Partners is no different. As we grow we need to make sure we have the systems and infrastructure in place to maintain our organization.
3. Sustaining our nature-based learning and community-building programs. We have launched a number of initiatives that have been incredibly successful and we want to see them continue in the future. Grants only get us so far, we need community members and businesses to help us build programs that will serve our community in the long term.
Support our Neighborhood Nature Scholarship Fund
The Neighborhood Nature program provides free time enrichment opportunities for K-8 grade children in collaboration with schools and community organizations. Our goal with this program is to support their healthy development through connection to the natural world. Each program is tailored to meet the needs of the children it serves.
We appreciate your support and thank you for joining us in our mission to help all people find nature where they live work and play in the Greater Rochester region.
