Consider being a Conference or Scholarship Sponsor!

Please consider a sponsorship on behalf of the Environmental Education Council of Ohio (EECO), a membership-based, non-profit organization promoting environmental stewardship and increasing environmental literacy across the state of Ohio. EECO's Vision: All Ohioans are environmentally literate and engage in decision making that ensures sustainability for future generations. EECO is the only statewide network of environmental education professionals, preK-12 educators, environmental businesses, and higher-education in Ohio. A statewide family, EECO programs give Ohioans the knowledge and skills to care for our shared environment and inspires young people to pursue academic and career paths related to the environment and natural resources.


We partner with state agencies such as Ohio EPA, Ohio Department of Education and Ohio Department of Natural Resources.  Because of our partnerships and a twelve region structure of our organization we are able to provide an overall outreach to over 800 Teachers and over 50,000 students statewide.  So far in 2016, EECO has provided over 90 workshops or events for 16,108 educators, students, and environmental professionals through its talented network of staff and volunteers. Your gift to EECO will enable us to expand this work and reach more educators, students, and community members. This can help EECO to ensure that Ohioans value and practice environmental stewardship and maintain the health of our wild spaces for future generations through the following EECO initiatives:

·         Expanding professional development opportunities across Ohio;

·         Creating a network of 500 environmental Career Ambassadors that visit Middle School-12 classrooms to share their academic and professional experience with students;

·         Facilitating Ohio’s only Environmental Education Certification Program;

·         Hosting an annual statewide Environmental Education Conference and three regional annual conferences in Ohio.


Sponsorships now for Environmental Education Council of Ohio are even more exciting because we are celebrating our 50th Anniversary! We are so thankful to organizations like yours who have helped us over the years get to this Golden Anniversary. You can help us celebrate through various support levels.  Attached are the sponsorship options for the Annual Conference or scholarships for educators to attend the conference. 


Your organization’s support of EECO will allow us to work together to create publicity opportunities through our multi-media marketing strategy that includes print materials as well as an e-newsletter and social media outlets. We thank you for your time, consideration, and support of the EECO family.
