Conservation Voters of South Carolina Education Fund is dedicated to maximizing the participation of conservation-minded citizens in environmental public policy decisions made at the state and local levels.
Conservation Voters Education Fund is a statewide, nonprofit, 501(c)3 public charily, governed by a six member Board of Directors. It is the sister organization of Conservation Voters of South Carolina sharing staff and office space.
South Carolina is faced with many environmental challenges. These challenges include addressing the threat of global climate change and securing enough clean abundant water for our communities. We are also challenged to build more sustainable communities and make more deliberate decisions about conserving our historic natural spaces.
Addressing these challenges requires greater public awareness and participation. Conservation Voters Education Fund believes education is the key to engaging the public and elected leaders to meet these environmental public policy challenges.
Since 2004, Conservation Voters Education Fund has hosted the Conservation Common Agenda. The Common Agenda uses a consensus approach to setting annual Legislative Priorities supported by 27 statewide conservation organizations representing over 40,000 members. Conservation Voters Education Fund publishes educational tools and hosts regional projects to better inform decision makers and the public about state and local environmental issues.
