From the Alberta Ecotrust website:

The online application portal for Major Projects is now open. Please review the guidelines and criteria before applying.

The heart of Alberta Ecotrust’s work is supporting the people and projects that effectively address Alberta’s most pressing environmental issues. We accomplish this primarily by investing Alberta environmental non-governmental organizations to more effectively deliver programs, projects, and results that advance their environmental missions within our issue priorities.

Major Grants

This program is designed to support more comprehensive projects that have the potential to result in substantial environmental benefit. The application process is more comprehensive and will be undertaken in two parts. These projects must be completed within a year. Maximum grant is $30,000.

Issue Priorities

All projects must align with at least one of our environmental priorities. If you are in doubt, please contact us before proceeding with your application.

  1. Water –  Protection and conservation of water and/or the maintenance of water quality
  2. Land Use – Protection or enhancement of ecological function of native and developed landscapes, including biodiversity, wildlife habitat and land use management.
  3. Climate Change  – Protection of the atmosphere, greenhouse gas and emissions reductions, and energy conservation
