Ellen and Colin Kennedy embrace environmentally mindful living practices at home while working professionally in the sustainability realm. They have chosen to make philanthropy a priority.

💡 Did you know there are more than 200 hours of climate and environmental content available from Arizona PBS? We’re grateful for loyal families like the Kennedys whose sponsorship of climate programming demonstrates a commitment to the preservation of our environment. Their environmentally-conscious outlook helps our continued mission to provide programming centered around protecting the earth and the natural world and helps amplify the urgency around climate change and sustainability.

“Our parents taught us a love of nature and how to caretake it. They fueled in us a sense of adventure and curiosity,” Ellen explained. Now they’re passing a passion for the environment on to their own children.

Shows like their kids’ favorites, “Daniel Tiger,” “Nature Cat” and “Wild Kratts,” help educate our youth on critical environmental issues like sustainability and water conservation.

“For us,” Ellen said, “it’s about living our ‘best life ever.’ Part of that is starting to contribute to organizations that help to broaden our world and engage us in learning.”

The Kennedy Family believes in public media and have made a generous gift to support Arizona PBS and all of the great programs you love. Now they’re challenging YOU, the loyal viewers of Arizona PBS. Can you match their $5000 gift to help ensure a continuation of quality programming?

Join the Kennedy Family in celebrating Earth Day with your gift in support of Arizona PBS.
