OSFund: Supporting communities taking environmental action

If your organization runs environmental projects or programs that contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, address climate change, or foster collaboration by engaging local communities, you may be eligible to receive up to $9,000 through the Ottawa Sustainability Fund (OSFund).

The OSFund was created in 2006 as a philanthropic fund of the Ottawa Community Foundation.  Since 2006, it has contributed over $100,000 in grants to Ottawa-based community projects and organizations. The fund is administered by EnviroCentre through a strategic partnership with the Ottawa Community Foundation and the OSFund Advisory Committee.

Applications are now open and will be accepted until October 19th. Please note that only charities registered with the Canada Revenue Agency as a charitable organization are eligible for funding. Not-for-profit status does not qualify your organization unless partnered with a charity for this project/program for which you are applying.

The OSFund awards grants to a variety of environmental projects or programs. In particular they are looking to support projects and programs that:

  • contribute to greenhouse gas emissions reduction and have a measurable impact
  • are innovative and address evolving environmental issues and climate change
  • engage partners, volunteers, and foster collaboration.

We are looking forward to receiving your applications!
