CAPE ELEUTHERA FOUNDATION INC Overview
The mission of CEF is to provide charitable funding support for place-based education, scientific research, and the development of sustainable technologies that promote a more livable future on the island of Eleuthera, The Bahamas and throughout the world.
The programs supported by the Cape Eleuthera Foundation continue to provide transformational life-changing educational experiences. The foundation invests in future leaders through support of programming to help them realize their own potential, to gain perspective on cultures different than their own, and by creating a broader community that is supportive of that leadership development. As a natural outgrowth of this process, whereby students are learning to live on a green campus powered by renewable energy and that recycles its waste, and whereby students from Eleuthera are realizing opportunities on-and-off island as part of their middle school training, and whereby ongoing science research is attracting expertise, generating knowledge, and informing local decisionmakers we have been recognized as a model for sustainable development.
