CEEF Awards Grant to Fund Natureland
March 19, 2019
The Cape Elizabeth Education Foundation announced a large-impact grant that will contribute $50,000 to renovate and expand Natureland, the outdoor classroom component of the Pond Cove playground. “CEFF is thrilled to provide an accessible space for exploration and education that will benefit a generation of Cape Students” said CEEF Executive Director Liz McEvoy. “Our mission is to fund innovation in Cape schools, and expanding opportunities with an enhanced outdoor classroom, weather stations, and garden area was a natural fit.” The CEEF contribution is especially noteworthy because it helps unlock an additional $50,000 contribution from the Cape Elizabeth Town Council, accessed by raising a matching amount of outside funds. Thanks to the generous support from CEEF*, the Cape Elizabeth Town Council, and individual contributions, the Pond Cove playground fundraising campaign is over halfway to its goal.
