Background of the organization:
CEGN is a national network of philanthropic foundations and other organizations that support efforts to transition toward a more sustainable world. Its members work with non government organizations, community groups and other charitable organizations to develop and deliver programs that can make communities healthier and more resilient, while protecting vital ecosystem services and the natural world.
The Canadian Environmental Grantmaker’s Network will coordinate work to support scientific analysis, policy development, advocacy and government relations by environmental organizations involved in implementation of the Pan Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change. In addition to these targeted activities, the funds will support network convening and capacity building (notably negotiation and communications skills).
