Support Us

We are a nonprofit organization that relies on the support of sponsors and donors. Our programs are made possible thanks to the generous financial support of corporations, individuals and groups. Donations of all sizes are gratefully accepted.

Why is it important to share stories of environmental excellence?

Sharing success:  Inspires environmental stewardship   |   Encourages others to participate   |   Elevates inspiring examples of environmental excellence

Through recognizing and celebrating environmental excellence, Albertans will benefit from a healthier, environmentally secure future. The Alberta Emerald Foundation serves as:

  • A catalyst for change.
  • An organization committed to raising youth awareness and enabling their participation in environmental excellence.
  • A collaborator with a diversity of groups to offer select and specialized programs.
  • A connector of diverse groups: youth, community groups, schools, business leaders, government leaders and others.
  • An advocate of Albertan environmental success stories.

Your generous support allows the Alberta Emerald Foundation to

  • Celebrate outstanding environmental initiatives and achievements of individuals, organizations and corporations through our premier event, the Emerald Awards, at no cost to participants.
  • Undertake new programs and projects, like Emerald Day, Youth Environmental Engagement Grants and the Sharing Stories communications initiative, focused on raising awareness of, and participation in environmental excellence.
