Some of the projects that you come up with may require certain equipment, software, or expertise that you will need to pay money for. Because of this, there are many generous organizations across Alberta that allow youth to send in applications and receive potential funding! However, before seeking out these organizations, make sure to have a concrete plan of what you wish to achieve with your project as well as what kind of funding your project actually needs. Ask yourself, "is this money necessary for the success of my project? Is there another way I can achieve the same goal?" Before you apply for funding, it is important to have a clear understanding of what you want to do with it so that it does not go to waste!
Below is a list of possible grants and other financial resources that you may wish to apply for to help fund your sustainable project!
