These are uncertain times.
The challenges we face can seem overwhelming. We’ve all seen the effects of a changing climate, like floods, forest fires, and heat domes. These issues and more demand our attention and support.
We see how important environmental work is to improving quality of life for communities across the board.
That’s why, we believe investing in the environment is an investment in the health of a community.
For 30 years, we've facilitated partnerships and convened projects to protect our ecosystems for generations to come.
We are a trusted charity that is well known for responsible financial management, using donations to fund tangible and transformational solutions to Alberta’s environmental and social challenges.
When we work together, the challenges we face are less daunting.
That’s why we partner across boundaries to mobilize and inspire those who champion and protect the environment.
And it’s why we are reaching out to Albertans like you, who are passionate about integrated and collaborative environmental solutions.
All funds raised maintain and expand our grants and initiatives, while ensuring an equitable and just future for all Albertans.

Defend Alberta Parks
In February 2020, the Government of Alberta announced their intention to remove 175 parks from the Alberta parks system. CPAWS Southern Alberta used funding from Alberta Ecotrust to help with their Defend Alberta Parks campaign. This decision has since been reversed, but only because of pushback from tens of thousands of Albertans that CPAWS created.
Blackfoot Phenology for Farmers Cultivating Ecological Literacy
Alberta Ecotrust funded Young Agrarians to create the Blackfoot Phenology Course that will provide farmers and food growers with an Indigenous lens on understanding of the ecosystems and landscapes.
