Mass. Envirothon primarily relies on yearly contributions from like-minded individuals, businesses, and organizations who want to support the Mass. Envirothon’s mission. Donations of any size are valuable and can leverage ten times its dollar value in time and resources from environmental agencies, educators, professionals, and other volunteers, so please give as generously as you can. A little can really do a lot!
- Consider making a multi-year pledge, which enables the committee to spend less time fundraising in the coming year and more time enriching the year-long student experience with additional supporting reference materials and other necessary supplies.
- Become an Envirothon Sponsor by giving direct support at a designated level. Your name or the name of your company or organization will be included on the Envirothon web pages and other program materials. Or you may wish to sponsor some specific aspect of Envirothon, such as its vibrant Power Networking Lunch, which is a favorite part of the day for teams, judges, and volunteers, who relish the opportunities to have more in-depth conversations about the issues, catch up with former colleagues and mentors, and establish new contacts.
- Consider funding an endowment, such as for student-team travel expenses (including grants for substitute teachers to replace the teacher-coaches), training workshops for teachers and orientation workshops for students, or additional reference materials. For some otherwise enthusiastic and talented high school teams, the lack of travel and substitute teacher funds prevents them from participating at all. These endowments may be more affordable than you think.
Again, all contributors, small and large, are thanked in our event program. Thank you for considering making a gift of cash to the Mass. Envirothon!
