Thank You Sponsors and Granting Organizations

You enable us to touch the minds of children, preserve nature, threatened or endangered species and historic structures.  Our educational programs would not be as rich, our projects not as successful,  and our events not as fun without your support and for that, we give you heartfelt thanks.  Below are the sponsors and granting organizations that contributed to BIPS this past year.  If we have left anyone off the list, let us know and please forgive us.  Thank you to our Green Gala 2020 Sponsors, please click here.
