10+ Donors that believe in building NGO capacities for Civil Society Development

All across Canada, people and organizations inspire us with their leadership and devotion to our natural world. They commit their time and energy not for credit but for the results. They choose to take up the call to protect, engage and advocate on behalf of nature. They act as a strong voice for nature for children’s futures.
Women for Nature are leaders who care deeply about nature and want to inspire others to make a difference. In particular, they want to encourage, foster and nurture youth (under 30) to demonstrate their leadership for nature. To that end, a grant/bursary has been established for a young person to develop and implement a project inspired by some of the objectives in the recently published Nature Playbook.
This Women for Nature sponsored grant of $1,000 will support project implementation in the year 2020, to celebrate the role that nature plays in their Canadian culture and identity.
20+ Donors standing up for Human Rights and Equality
10+ International Donors seeking to improve Access to Water, Hygiene and Sanitation
20+ Global Donors for Empowering Women and Girls
25+ Donors for the Empowerment of Youth
Project ideas will be evaluated by a Women for Nature Grant Bursary Committee based on the following:
Potential impact and benefits of the project;
Public engagement and reach of the project;
Possible involvement of Women for Nature members;
Creativity and clarity of the proposed project;
Effective use of the grant;
A letter of support is welcomed;
