SMALL GRANT PROGRAM OVERVIEW
We believe environmental stewards draw inspiration from their earliest experiences in the outdoors. At New Belgium Brewing Company we are reminded every day that we are a part of the natural world because producing world-class beers depends on the health of the environment.
As environmental stewards we are enthusiastic about programs that foster connectivity between humans and nature. We aim to discover programs that engage youth from a variety of backgrounds in the outdoors and prepare them to make knowledgeable choices about the environment. New Belgium is devoted to honoring nature at every turn of the business, and we are privileged to support programs that share our commitment. Let’s go outside!
We are in support of Youth Environmental Education (grades Pre K-12) projects that:
Apply an interdisciplinary approach
Influence positive behavior change
Experientially engage students in the outdoors
Incorporate a comprehensive curriculum tied to national and state learning standards
