Fueling 1000 Hours Outside: 2024 Kentucky Gives Day

New Pioneers has much to celebrate this May, following a successful 2024 Kentucky Gives Day campaign. We extend a special “thank you” to the Kentucky Nonprofit Network for facilitating this day of grassroots giving, and to our donors who made this day such a rousing success!

The Kentucky Nonprofit Network describes Kentucky (KY) Gives Day as “an opportunity for Kentuckians (near and far) to come together to make donations to participating Kentucky charities in an effort to raise as much money as possible in 24 hours”. Supporters navigated to the KY Gives Day platform on Tuesday, May 7 to donate to causes and organizations they support - and our supporters showed up for New Pioneers!

This was the first year that New Pioneers participated in the statewide giving day, and we celebrate both nearing our gift goal on this day and bringing new donors and friends into our work. To all those who gave, you’ve made an immeasurable difference in committing to our cause and our communities. We celebrate you!

Our giving campaign for this day centered around our 1000 Hours Outside summer challenge, during which we’ll be encouraging individuals and families, young and old, to reconnect with the natural world by spending dedicated time outdoors this summer with an ambitious mission to reach a cumulative community goal of 1,000 hours outside. New Pioneers seeks to combat the rising tide of nature deficits, eco-anxiety, and screen time takeover by supporting 1000 hours of outdoor exploration and play for our community.

The generosity of donors on KY Gives Day supports the financial needs of this program, including offering educational programs, growing integrated community partnerships, and spreading awareness to inspire all ages in our community to take the #1000hoursoutside challenge.

Join us in celebrating the supporters - new and continued - who are growing our sustainability movement. We look forward to celebrating your contributions through this summer’s program. Interested in donating to support 1000 Hours Outside but weren’t able to participate in our KY Gives Day? No worries! We’re still accepting donations online or in our office. Reach out to info@newpioneers.org if you need further support. Thanks to you - generosity grows!

Thanks to our generous partners!
