EarthShare, a nationwide network of the most respected environmental and conservation charities in the U.S., recently named PA Parks and Forests Foundation as a new benefiting member for 2017.
As one of EarthShare's newest members, PPFF will be participating in employee engagement and workplace giving programs across Pennsylvania and across the country so employees can easily support Pennsylvania’s state parks and forests through their workplaces.
Under its new EarthShare membership, PPFF joins other well-known conservation organizations – including World Wildlife Fund, The Nature Conservancy, and The Ocean Conservancy – in reaching the American public where they work.
For almost 30 years, EarthShare has supported nearly 600 of America’s most respected environmental and conservation nonprofit organizations through the original crowdfunding – workplace giving.
Workplace supporters aid in the preservation of our world's natural areas, as well as supporting public health and the protection of our air, water, land and wildlife.
By offering the EarthShare program, forward thinking companies give their employees ways to connect with purpose at work, along with an opportunity to easily and effectively support causes that matter to them while they help build a sustainable future.
"Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation is proud to be selected as an EarthShare member as we continue to work to ensure a place and experience for everyone in the outdoors. We are excited to be able to provide another method for park and forest enthusiasts to support the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation through workplace giving. Workplace support goes a long way in keeping our environment healthy, and helps new, committed supporters get involved with our work and our programs," said Marci Mowery, president, PPFF.
Founded in 1999, the PA Parks and Forests Foundation supports 121 state parks and 2.2 million acres of forest by coordinating volunteers, activities and donations through its 40 chapters.
The mission of the foundation is to inspire stewardship of Pennsylvania’s state parks and forests through public engagement in volunteerism, recreation and conservation. This work will now be supported through the EarthShare@Work Program.
