EcoFriendly Sask has been replaced by EcoFriendly West and will incorporate news and articles about all 4 of Canada’s western provinces. EcoFriendly Action Grants are on hold for the moment as we consider the best way to offer them on a wider scale (Feb. 5, 2022)

We believe that people want to make a difference and have a positive impact on nature and the non-human environment, but sometimes they need additional financial resources. We decided to help by providing small grants, usually $500, to support local projects that will improve the environment.

Grant Criteria 
EcoFriendly Sask is a small personal initiative (Who is EcoFriendly Sask?) so there is some flexibility in our grant criteria. However, we will expect you to demonstrate how your project meets the following criteria:

Type of Project 
Projects should protect, preserve, or repair the natural, non-human environment. This can be direct (habitat restoration, energy conservation) or indirect (environmental education, promotion of local natural habitats).

Projects should benefit the natural environment and not just people.

Projects should be concrete and have tangible results. For example, the Carrot River Valley Watershed Association received a grant to provide area schools with mini watershed models and educational books so that learning continued after the Association’s presentations. Locals concerned about food security received a grant to establish the Saskatoon Seed Library.

We do not normally fund gardens or outdoor classrooms if there is not a clear indication that they are being designed to benefit the natural environment. For more information, see EcoFriendly Action Grant Ideas for Gardeners and Teachers.

While we encourage organizations to replace disposable dishes with reusable ones, we no longer support these projects financially due to the number of potential applications.

Applicants should be individuals, schools, or community groups and institutions in Saskatchewan. You don’t have to have charitable status (but it’s good if you do).

Larger organizations and municipalities must demonstrate need and explain why the project cannot be supported through their own operational budget.

Projects must have a community-wide impact.

We do not support projects that are purely personal (e.g. purchasing a solar panel for a personal residence) or on private property even though we recognize there are benefits to setting an example.

Grants are not available for business initiatives (e.g. starting up a renewable energy company). 

Financial Considerations
Projects should be for short-term projects or start-up funding. We don’t provide support for ongoing operational funding. For example, we might help you to set up a composting program, but we wouldn’t provide you with a grant to maintain it on a long-term basis.

Projects should be small. We do not normally support projects where our funding is only a small piece of a large project. 

Demonstrate need. EcoFriendly Action Grants are designed to support projects that would not be able to go ahead without our support.

Application Process
There are no forms to fill in. Simply send us an email ( outlining your project idea, its purpose and audience, as well as what you need to help make it happen.

Clearly indicate how you will use the funds (e.g. a list of supplies that are required and approximate cost, a draft budget).

We accept grant proposals on a continuous basis. There are no application deadlines.

Grant recipients will be expected to do the following:

Acknowledge receipt of the grant, using EcoFriendly Sask’s logo, in your organization’s electronic and print publications in order to increase awareness of EcoFriendly Sask’s publications and grant program.

Provide photographs and a written report at the completion of the project to be posted on EcoFriendly Sask’s website so that others can learn from your experience.
