Funding for environmental sustainability in Atlantic Canada

Environmental FundsHey Funds Fans!  I usually concentrate on funding for B.C. but some of my viewers are from out East and I wanted to share this with them.  Have a great Monday!

Small Change Fund has funding available to help grassroots initiatives of Atlantic Canada working on environmental sustainability projects.

Small Change Fund (SCF) is looking for 6 grassroots sustainability projects based in Atlantic Canada, which focus on the connection between people, land and water. The chosen projects will be awarded up to $2,500 for their project, and will be featured on our crowd-funding platform to enable their projects to raise up to $5,000 each.

SCF will be working with the selected projects on a six-week online campaign. The campaign will support groups in communicating their projects to the online public to generate online traffic and encourage donations to their projects.

In order to be eligible, and be presented to our advisors for consideration, projects must adhere to the following:

1. Support Small Change Fund’s guiding principles. Projects will be evaluated according to the ‘guiding principles’ document found on their application page.

2. Funding requests cannot exceed $5,000.

3. Only projects taking place in Atlantic Canada (Newfoundland/Labrador, PEI, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick) will be considered for the campaign.

4. Applicants must either be a Registered Charity or considered a Qualified Donee, as per Canada Revenue Agency’s Charities division. If you are unsure about your eligibility, please contact the Charities Directorate.

5. Organizations must provide information on how they will cooperate with Small Change Fund, as per their application form.
