Environmental Education Funding Directory

Welcome to CBEEN’s new online searchable database for funding opportunities for your environmental education initiatives! This database has nearly 100 funding opportunities searchable by region, project type, applicant type, and project theme.

Please note the following:

  • many of the grants listed have specific application dates which you will need to confirm on the funder’s website
  • to confirm if the funding opportunity is a good fit for your initiative we recommend you contact the funder directly
  • if you aren’t a registered charity, you may be able to partner with one to be eligible for funding
  • our database isn’t exhaustive, new funding opportunities emerge frequently, and funding opportunities will also change/terminate over time, so if you find a funding program that isn’t on our list, or that no longer provides funding to environmental education initiatives, please let us know at info@cbeen.org
