Fundraisers & Events
Our fundraisers and events allow us to continue to execute our core mission: to educate, inspire people of all ages, helping each one to learn to interact in environmentally responsible ways and improving their thinking through positive connections with nature. Please join us at one or more, for a good time, and for a good cause!

The Giving Challenge is a 24-hour virtual giving event that brings together nearly 700 local nonprofit organizations with their passionate donors and community members to support causes and missions they care about while creating transformative impact. The next Challenge will take place from noon to noon on April 9 and 10, 2024. Your donation to CHEC, up to $100.00, will be matched, once again, 1:1, by the Patterson Foundation. Your participation in this online fundraiser helps us continue to grow and expand programs and events that align with our core mission. We're so very grateful to our repeat Giving Challenge donors and to everyone who supports us through this and other events! Additional information coming soon.
