The Blue Sky Funders Forum inspires, deepens, and expands philanthropy to advance opportunities that connect people and nature and promote environmental literacy.
“Education, if it means anything, should not take people away from the land, but instill in them even more respect for it...” —Wangari Maathai, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
“Like music and art, love of nature is a common language that can transcend political or social boundaries.” ―President Jimmy Carter
“We have flown the air like birds and swum the sea like fishes, but have yet to learn the simple act of walking the earth like brothers.” —Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"We must regain the conviction that we need one another, that we have a shared responsibility for others and the world, and that being good and decent are worth it." —Pope Francis
