Thank You!

Donations help us to meet our mission, and beyond. 

Consider ECS in your annual giving, and make a difference in the education of students in the city of Pittsburgh.


Out-the-Door ecs

Students at ECS have over 2100 outdoor experiences every year and spend about 175 minutes in recess a week. ECS combines academics and out-the-door learning to approach real world problems that build active, engaged, empathetic citizens. You will find students going on hikes through Frick Park identifying trees, picking up trash in the community, tending to the school’s garden beds, visiting the history center learning about the roots of Pittsburgh, and so much more. Help us create these opportunities for students to be engaged citizens.


Growing ECS

ECS grows citizens. And we are expanding our campuses to support additional students at every grade level and to continue our mission-based program through the high school years. Growth in space allows us to developmentally right-size our schools, support the demand for our program, and expand opportunities for students. Will you help us as we grow?



The Environmental Health and Wellness fund will provide increased beauty, health, and well-being to our students. This fund focuses on Environmental Health and Wellness investments in our facilities. This is an opportunity to invest in the environmental health infrastructure needed to support indoor air quality, biophilic investments, and overall attention to the health and comfort of our built environments. Help us keep our space beautiful and healthy.


ecs FUND

The mission of The Environmental Charter School at Frick Park is to educate each student to high academic learning standards using a themed curriculum that will foster knowledge, love of and respect for the environment and the will to preserve it for future generations. By donating to the general ECS fund not only will you help us support our mission but also each student that walks into our buildings. Help us support each child in their educational journey.
