About the Environmental Sustainability Funds of GCF

A foundational element of our cultural heritage is the belief that we do no inherit the Earth from our parents, but borrow it from our grandchildren. That lens is consistent with the agricultural history and tradition of outdoorsmanship here in the Ohio River Valley. The Ensuring Environmental Sustainability RFP honors this past by supporting forward-thinking and innovative collaborative action. This opportunity is made possible through the generosity of numerous donors who value ecological and environmental stewardship.
