Mapping What Matters Survey— win a $1000 Capacity Grant

The Alberta Ecotrust Foundation is conducting a comprehensive survey of environmental non-profit groups in Alberta. By completing the survey, your organization will be eligible for a draw to receive a $1000 Mini-grant for Capacity. From the Ecotrust website:

At Alberta Ecotrust, we believe the environmental challenges we all face are too large for any organization to address alone. It is critical that we work together to find solutions to the most pressing issues of our day.

If you are the Executive Director, Board Chair or primary decision-maker for an environmental nonprofit in Alberta we would like to invite you to complete this confidential survey. The collective responses will help us understand the scope, scale and needs of Alberta’s ENGO community in order to optimise how our programs can best support the important environmental work you do as charities and nonprofits. Your responses will also contribute to a collective understanding of this sector and results will be shared with all participants via a summary report. Please add your voice!

The deadline for the survey is August 18 at 5:00pm.

If your organization has not received an invitation to complete the survey, follow the link below to request an invite.
