The Rockfall Foundation
We deeply appreciate the grant support that the Rockfall Foundation has provided over the years. They provided the seed funding for the creation of Everyone Outside.
The Rockfall Foundation: Supporting Environmental Education & Conservation Since 1935.
The Rockfall Foundation is committed to promoting environmental education, resource conservation and sustainable development in Middlesex County and region.
Community Foundation of Middlesex County:
We appreciate the funding that the Community Foundation grants program has provided to Everyone Outside. The Sari Rosenbaum Fund for Women and Girls provided critical funding for our Women of the Woods and Girls Outside programs.
In 1997, community leaders from across Middlesex County established the Community Foundation dedicated to enhancing and improving the quality of life in the area. They believed that our county deserved a community foundation like those that were working successfully in surrounding communities. The community foundation concept is a simple one. It is a group of individuals and businesses who pool resources to support the community where we live, work and play.
Middlesex Land Trust
The Middlesex Land Trust (MxLT) preserves open spaces in northern Middlesex County by identifying, protecting and maintaining significant natural features such as wetlands, scenic areas, critical wildlife habitats, prime farm land, and unique geological formations.
We are excited to be partnering with the Middlesex Land Trust for a variety of programs on their preserves including school field trips, after-school programs and public hikes. This partnership is enabling us to get more people outside to connect with nature.
Connecticut Forest and Park Association
The Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to connecting people to the land in order to protect forests, parks, walking trails, and open spaces in Connecticut for future generations.
Some of our hikes/walks are cosponsored by the CFPA rambles program.
Coginchaug Valley Education Foundation
The mission of the Coginchaug Valley Education Foundation is to promote excellence, innovation and creativity in education for the community and to support lifelong learning in Durham and Middlefield by giving grants and sponsoring programs. Most recently, they have provided us with the funding to start a free program that brings together small children and senior citizens to interact together in nature.
