Overview:

ACC Environment Grant - Contributing to the protection and preservation of mountain and climbing environments

The ACC Environment Grant is issued annually from a permanent fund to be used to create a legacy of environmental improvement. Wilderness is a diminishing and irreplaceable resource of great intrinsic value not only to those who recreate in its spaces, but to everyone on our planet.

The focus of the Environment Grant is wilderness conservation rather than recreation enhancement. It is the ACC’s goal to be able to act quickly and decisively in order to protect our wild spaces from being lost.

The purpose of the Grant is to provide support that contributes to the protection and preservation of mountain and climbing environments, including the preservation of alpine flora and fauna in their natural habitat.

Funding priority will be given to projects related to the alpine and Arctic environments and climbing areas in Canada in recognition of our members’ unique appreciation of these areas. As funds permit, projects in other mountainous and polar regions of the world may be supported.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
