Support ECRI: Donate to ECRI's Ed Fund

2023 Ed Fund Appeal

Your tax-deductible donation to the Environment Council of Rhode Island's Education Fund, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, allows us to continue to:

  • Finish up and implement an inclusive, just, and forward-thinking strategic planning process
  • Identify resources and other funding opportunities that will enable an even stronger ECRI
  • Educate Rhode Islanders on environment and climate priorities through events and activism
  • Support school projects through the Tisdale Environmental Education Awards
  • Support young climate activists and new organizations through mentoring, fiscal agency, and recognition
  • Fund administrative and communications staff that provide crucial resources and connections among the Rhode Island environmental community

The Education Fund provided $250 checks to 3 youth projects through the Tisdale Environmental Education Awards program and raised money to fund 3 more projects in January 2022 using an online auction.

The 2021 recipients were:

 ◊ Westerly Land Trust – Engaging Students in Environmental Experiential Education
 ◊ The Central Falls School District’s Expanded Learning Community – Expanding Learning Opportunities Through Gardening
 ◊ Dr. Edward A. Ricci Middle School, North Providence – Creating a More Sustainable School Through Planting Trees

The 2022 award winners will be announced in January.

The Ed Fund also organized another well-received Nature Video Festival and are preparing for a 2022 event in collaboration with our partners at the RI Natural History Survey.
