Does your non-profit organization need funding for
a wildlife conservation initiative? Are you a teacher with an idea
for an ecology education program for students, but your school
lacks the financial resources to make it happen?
TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF),
one of Canada’s longest-serving environmental charities,
is inviting non-profit organizations with a charitable registration
number, and schools, to apply for funding for their environment and
wildlife projects at www.tdfef.com.
“We know the recession has hurt the
ability of charities and schools to fund their environment
projects, so we’ve made a pledge to find a way to provide
more financial support to more projects in 2010,” says
Mary Desjardins, Executive Director, TD Friends of the Environment
Foundation. “As we celebrate our 20th anniversary this
year, we welcome applications for funding so we can keep up the
momentum to help Canadians make a positive impact on the
environment and wildlife.”
Some of the types of projects that TD FEF funds
include wildlife rehabilitation, education programs for children,
environmental cleanups, tree planting campaigns, conservation and
recycling initiatives and urban renewal projects.
