Thank You to Our Presenting Sponsor, Kaiser Permanente
Since 2004, Kaiser Permanente has raised more than a million dollars to help support our member organizations, been the Presenting Sponsor for our annual Earth Day events, and provided numerous grants to support EarthShare Georgia's mission. In 2021, they received EarthShare Georgia's 2021 Outstanding Campaign Partner Award. And, for the 2022 campaign year, Kaiser Permanente employees have pledged $20,000. These funds will support the Nonprofit Partners that are working hard every day to conserve and protect our air, land and water.
Thank you to our Corporate Sustainers:
