Are you an environmental nonprofit making a lasting impact for our environment?

Alberta Ecotrust Foundation’s Environmental Grants fund initiatives across Alberta in support of our charitable purpose and vision of healthy ecosystems for all Albertans. Throughout the history of our programs we’ve supported a diverse range of initiatives, from identifying key biodiversity and conservation areas in Alberta, to engaging Albertans on the issues of climate change and energy transition, to supporting ecological restoration work on farms, creeks, and landscapes across the province. And many, many other important environmental initiatives over the last 30 years.

Refreshed Environmental Grant Programs

Our Environmental Grant Programs reflect the refreshing of Alberta Ecotrust Foundation’s integrated program framework and responding to the urgency of both the biodiversity and climate crises as well as advancing the circular economy.  It is because of these challenges that we offer funding to a variety of organizations so you can take your remarkable initiative from idea to reality.

We offer two environmental grant program streams: the Springboard Grant (open for applications early summer 2024) and the Environmental Impact Grant (2024 intake opens mid-December).

When it comes to teaching about complex sustainability topics like climate change, teachers are largely left to their own devices. Thanks to support from Alberta Ecotrust, we've been able to address this important gap through innovative programs such as a three-day summer institute on climate education and a national environmental and sustainability education e-course for teachers-in-training.
