When you drive around the state of Alabama, one of the most popular “vanity” car tags is this one:
Most people don’t know that the organization in charge of these car tags have been around for more than 20 years, supporting environmental education programs throughout the state.
Legacy, Partners in Environmental Education, or simply Legacy, is one of the state of Alabama’s environmental education success stories. In fact, since 1992, Legacy has given grants to schools and education organizations totaling over $3.5 million.
Yes – $3.5 million!
That money comes from the purchase of the Legacy “Protect Our Environment” car tag.
If your local school or organization has an interest in environmental education, and they have a project that needs funding, the deadline to submit a Legacy grant proposal is September 30, 2016.
Don’t miss out on this grant cycle. Here is the Legacy Grant Application webpage.
And the next time you see the Legacy car tag on the back of someone’s car, give the person in that car a thumbs up for support environmental education and our future.
