Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to British Columbia nonprofits for projects to enhance and protect the natural environment in the Sea to Sky Corridor. Funding is intended for active environmental campaigns with specific objectives and a tangible environmental benefit. Community partnerships are encouraged.

The Environmental Fund typically supports project’s capital assets such as land, planting and restoration supplies, equipment, interpretive signage and building materials, although this does not preclude funding of some programs well-suited to the Foundation's mandate.

The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation Environmental Fund is dedicated to providing financial support to Qualified Donees whose actions can show a benefit to the natural environment in the Sea to Sky Corridor. The Foundation's mandate is to expand fundraising efforts to support larger environmental projects with long term results within the Sea to Sky Corridor, as well as to build strong partnerships with community stakeholders.

Funding emphasis cannot be on general operating expenses or staff payroll.
