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

We are refreshing our Environmental Grant Program in 2022.

Alberta Ecotrust is looking forward to the opportunities ahead of us in 2022, including refreshing the Environmental Grant Program.

Last spring, we asked environmental nonprofits to participate in an impact evaluation of our Environmental Grant Program.

Now, we are continuing that work by taking time to review and refresh the program, so we can fund projects that matter to Alberta's environmental community, and improve the application experience.

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.
