Yakima Basin Environmental Education Program (YBEEP) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit registered with the Washington State Charities Program (1-800-332-4483). Registration # 29246. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
History & Need:
YBEEP activities were funded by the Bonneville Power Administration from 1991 through the 2007-08 school year.
Since then program activities have been supported by contracts & donations from public & private organizations & individuals. 501(c)3 status was received for the program in June, 2010. As state & federal budget cuts increase, YBEEP is increasingly dependent upon individual & corporate donations to educate students & the public about environmental issues.
