Funder Organization Type
- Financial Institution
- Community Garden projects need to contain a focus on at least one environmental issue in order to be eligible for funding.
- Environmental Education projects should contain a focus on local environmental issues and identify why it is important to educate the public. For school projects, the project should focus on information that is appropriate to the target audience combined with a ‘hands-on’ educational component or workshop. If the project involves planting, gardens or any physical alterations to school grounds, the application must be submitted by the school.
- Outdoor classroom and nature play projects should address the benefits of having one for the school and how the entire school and possibly the community will use this space to take part in environmental learning.
- For tree planting and greening projects, there should be a focus on engaging the community as volunteers and on planting native species.
