WWF-Canada is in its fourth cycle of the Green CommUnity School Grants Program. Through the support of Loblaw Companies Limited, WWF-Canada will grant $600,000 over three years, up to $200,000 a year, to Canadian elementary and secondary schools.
The grant program aims to support school projects that will connect students with nature, help reduce a community’s impact on the environment, increase understanding of environmental issues and solutions, stimulate environmental leadership, and inspire students and communities to take action.
The application deadline is Thursday, October 13th, 2011 at 3:00 pm EST. Proposed projects must be implemented between February 1, 2012 and January 31, 2013. Winners will be announced in December 2011.
