Member Grant

Moralea Milne Memorial Environment Fund

The members of the Native Plant Study Group decided to rename our small grant to the above title in honour of long-time member and restoration enthusiast Moralea. This grant is available for members (at least one year of membership with NPSG) or a member can nominate a project or organization. Eligible projects include any initiative that supports the restoration of native plants in the region with little access to other funds. It is typically used for the purchase of plants, tools, or expert advice on a restoration project.

Quick Facts to know before applying for the Member Grant:

  • Applications are accepted on a rolling basis (anytime)
  • Applicants must be a member or nominated by a member to be eligible
  • Applicants do not need to be a nonprofit or charity
  • It may take up to 6 (six) weeks for a decision to be made, please plan accordingly
