Event Sponsorship Opportunities
Sponsoring the Advancing Environmental Education Conference & Awards for Excellence in Environmental Education Banquet
CAEE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, incorporated in 1989. CAEE’s mission, to improve the collective product of statewide environmental education, is accomplished by managing several capacity-building projects and professional development activities. CAEE brings together public agencies, teachers, community organizations, businesses, and individuals distributing, supporting, or providing environmental education programs and materials.
We invite you to be a champion for environmental education in our state by sponsoring the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education’s (CAEE) events this year through monetary, booklet advertisement or in-kind support. By underwriting these important events, you will help offset costs, reduce registration fees, and provide scholarships for educators. Support for environmental education is vital for a healthy environment, vibrant economy, and successful communities. This is a great opportunity to learn about what is going on with environmental education in Colorado, and to make it known that you support these activities.
Recognition for your sponsorship takes many and varied forms including acknowledgement at our events, in our Donor News and Annual Report, advertisement in specific event programs, thank you in electronic media, and complimentary options for each event.

Funds will help build capacity for environmental education across Colorado and ensure that all Coloradans have the opportunity to learn about the environment where they live.
