Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to Saskatchewan nonprofit corporations, cooperatives, or registered charities for environmental programs in eligible locations. Program focus areas include resource conservation and activities addressing environmental protection, communications, research, and education. Funding is intended to benefit Saskatoon. Preference will be given to organizations that did not receive funding in the previous year.

Initiatives prioritized for funding in 2021 include those that: increase awareness and protection of Saskatoon's water resources, reduce the amount of waste going to landfills, encourage active transportation, and provide learning opportunities that support the City’s environmental goals.

Type of activity to be funded:

  • Project – pilot project or other
  • Extension of current project, program, or service
  • Operations
  • Other

Priority will be given to:

  • Projects rather than operational funding;
  • Partnerships that involve more than one group;
  • Projects that have a broad (e.g., city-wide) rather than a limited (e.g., neighbourhood) impact; and
  • Projects completed in the year funding is awarded.

Term of Contract:

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

To be eligible for support, your organization must:
- Be registered under one of the following categories and comply with its provisions: the Non-profit Corporations Act of the Province of Saskatchewan; the Co-operative Act of the Province of Saskatchewan; charitable status regulations of the Canada Revenue Agency
- Serve the needs of Saskatoon residents and preferably have membership that resides within the geographical boundaries of the city. A national or provincial parent body of a local branch may qualify for funding provided the application relates to a program specifically targeted to Saskatoon’s environment. If your organization is the Saskatoon chapter of a provincial or national organization and is not incorporated in its own right, you can apply for funding if you include contact information for the provincial or national parent organization, including the incorporation number, so that the grant payment can be made out to the incorporated organization.
- Have an independent governing body composed of volunteers. This board will be held responsible for the effectiveness of services provided and financial accountability for assistance received.

Organizations that received previous funding but have not submitted the required summary report by the application deadline, will not be considered for funding until the reporting requirements are met.

Ineligible applicants:
- Community groups that exist primarily for political or sectarian purposes.
- Community groups providing third-party funding that exist for the primary purpose of fundraising or providing assistance to other groups.
