The Mission of the Environmental Education Foundation is to award educational scholarships and grants to area students and schools for environmental-centered studies and to promote environmental awareness to all ages of the Geneva Lake area.
The Environmental Education Foundation was founded in 1980 as an affiliate of the Geneva Lake Association (GLA). During its lengthy history, the Foundation has awarded more than $500,000 in college scholarships, camping and outdoor education awards to over hundreds of lake area youth, from 5th grade through graduate school. Over the years, the Foundation assets and income have grown from consistent support of area residents, allowing the EEF to annually award more than $45,000 to deserving students in the Geneva Lake area.
The EEF has a unique and distinct focus that promotes and financially supports environmental education experiences for Geneva Lake area youth.
The Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit, tax exempt 501 (c) (3) organization, governed by a Board of Directors and By-laws.
