Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to Saskatchewan nonprofit corporations, cooperatives, or registered charities for environmental programs in eligible areas. Funding is intended for initiatives that reduce landfill waste, protect water resources, increase environmental awareness, provide learning opportunities, and encourage active transportation in Saskatoon.

To be eligible for the environmental component, activities must meet a demonstrated community need that is supported by the City and relate to one or more of the following categories:

  • Protection of the environment;
  • Conservation of natural resources; and
  • Environmental communications, research and education.

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.

Operational funding requests will only be considered if insufficient project-based applications are received. Preference will be given to organizations that did not receive funding in the previous year.

GrantWatch ID#: 150381

Estimated Size of Grant:

Funding requests should not exceed $10,000, and the grant will fund no more than 50% of any project budget.

Term of Contract:

Activities are to take place between April 1, 2020 – March 31, 2021.

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.

Funding is not available for:
- Capital projects (e.g., purchase or construction of new facilities, or renovations to existing facilities);
- Third-party funding;
- Duplication of funding already provided (e.g., projects funded previously through the Environmental Grant program or projects funded through other City of Saskatoon sources).

Assistance will not be provided to fund accumulated deficits or program shortfalls.

City of Saskatoon will not replace financial assistance that was previously provided to the organization by senior levels of government.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications will be accepted until February 15, 2020.

An organization will receive only one grant per year under this program. Organizations may consolidate multiple project funding requests into one application.

Upon notification of award, a cheque for the allocated amount will be issued to the organization for the project approved.
