Go Wild Grants

Canadian secondary schools are going wild with WWF-Canada, creating leadership opportunities and student experiences in building a sustainable future. From Indigenous reconciliation gardens, ‘no mow’ zones for wildlife, to native plant pollinator gardens, the imaginative projects demonstrate the power of students for nature.

Are you a secondary student interested in leading a Go Wild project? Consult with a teacher to support you in your project proposal. If you are a teacher, consider a classroom brainstorming session to shape your Go Wild proposal, or host a student pitch competition to identify a project or two to submit to WWF-Canada for funding.

Interested in Going Wild with WWF-Canada?

Each fall, WWF-Canada invites students, faculty, staff and educators to share their best ideas that will help nature thrive. You will have the opportunity to submit your proposal for a chance to receive a grant to kick-start your project in your school community.

We will be looking for projects that will protect or restore nature, including activities related to creating, restoring, rehabilitating or recovering natural ecosystems and habitats in your school community.

We will prioritize ideas that help school communities to:

  • Learn and discover your local ecosystem, its history, biodiversity, how it works and what it needs
  • Take action for nature by creating, restoring or protecting habitat with native wildflowers, plants and trees
  • Connect with your communities to create lasting impact

Stay tuned for our next call for proposals in fall of 2023. Sign up for our Living Planet @ School newsletter for updates on how you can Go Wild with WWF-Canada.
