ENGO Directory Update and Capacity Survey are Underway

Don't miss your chance to be seen, heard and win!

The Alberta Environmental Network's Directory Update and Alberta Ecotrust's Nonprofit Capacity Survey are both underway.  Over the month of May, we invite all environmental nonprofits in Alberta to invest 15 minutes of your time to register for the directory and complete the capacity survey.  By participating, you will ensure your organization is well connected and its voice is heard in the development of future services for nonprofits. It will also make your organization eligible to win some great prizes!

AEN Environmental Directory

Supported by Alberta Ecotrust, The Alberta Environmental Network's (AEN) revised Environmental Directory is an online searchable database that will present a clear picture of environmental groups and their activity in Alberta.  Environmental groups will be able to use the directory to easily connect with each other and stay connected, while others across Alberta will be able to find out what great work is being done in their communities.

In addition to creating the easily accessible and searchable directory, AEN will use the information to enhance its networking role by engaging environmental groups working on issues ranging from formal policy discussions to multi-stakeholder consultations. The information will also help populate AEN's caucuses and committees. 

Alberta Ecotrust Non-Profit Capacity Survey

At the same time as the directory update, Alberta Ecotrust is undertaking a capacity survey of environmental nonprofits. We are reaching out to all Alberta nonprofits, urban and rural, working on water issues, land use and conservation, as well as air and energy projects to complete the survey today. 

The information collected through the survey will help create an understanding of groups by size, location and issue.  It will also allow Alberta Ecotrust to reach out and distribute information about funding and resource opportunities, to improve our own programs and to also create better bridges between Alberta environmental groups, other funders and nonprofit service providers.

Participate - and become eligible to win great prizes

Your participation in the directory and capacity research projects is crucial to AEN and Alberta Ecotrust's efforts to support environmental groups throughout Alberta. As an incentive to participate, the first 50 organizations to register for the directory and complete the survey will receive a $15 Chapters gift card.  Further, all organizations that complete both will be entered into a draw for a  $3,000 Capacity Package that includes three days of custom consulting on strategic or operational planning, communications or fund development planning, as well as a cash mini-grant to invest in your organization's capacity.
