Supporting Positive Change! The Art and Phyllis Grindle Foundation

Nature’s Academy would like to recognize the Art and Phyllis Grindle Foundation for their continued support in empowering our students and local community!

This foundation’s generous gift will provide funding for our STEM Literacy Project program that takes place in Manatee County, FL. This project provides an opportunity for students to become citizen scientists while learning about marine debris, water quality, biodiversity data, and the natural ecosystems they encounter. Not only do we help students experience the joy that comes from being immersed in nature, but we also teach them life lessons on how to leave the world a better place than they found it.

Because of altruistic organizations like the Art and Phyllis Grindle Foundation, Nature’s Academy can better equip our future leaders with the inspiration and tools necessary for environmental sustainability. Thank you for helping us improve STEM literacy, foster environmental stewardship and work toward our goal of impacting more than 5,000 participants annually!

Stronger Together

Nature’s Academy is thrilled to have this funding for an already beneficial program within our community. We cannot thank the Art and Phyllis Grindle Foundation enough for their recognition. Proving once again that we are stronger when we all stand together.

With help from our donors and supporters, Nature’s Academy looks forward to continuing positive change. If you would like to make a difference in your own community, become a Nature’s Academy sponsor. We have different levels of giving for every budget. A donation of only $75 will fund a field trip for one fortunate child. Make a difference and become a tool of change! For more information, email us at or visit our website.
