    School Garden Project of Lane County

    Those interested in applying to join Blue Sky should complete the membership application. Once a completed application is received, Blue Sky staff will review it and contact the applicant to confirm that it is ready for review by the Blue Sky board or else request additional information. The board reviews completed applications on a rolling basis.

    There is a suggested contribution for membership, which is based on an organization's annual grantmaking for environmental literacy. Please contact us for specific details about membership contribution levels or any additional information. 

    Criteria

    As a working group of EGA, Blue Sky applies the same criteria for membership. All members of Blue Sky, whether a foundation, corporation, giving program, or individual, must:

    • Give at least $50,000 for connecting people to nature and/or environmental literacy amongst at least five groups per year and
    • Grant out more funds than raised for internal expenses.
    Entities that grant funds but do not act primarily as grantmaking institutions are not eligible for membership. Interpretation of these criteria is at the discretion of Blue Sky's board.
