The Canadian Environmental Grantmakers' Network (CEGN) is a membership group of private, community, public and corporate
foundations, and government and corporate funding programs that give grants in support of the Canadian environment.
CEGN works to develop an effective network of environmental grantmakers in Canada by facilitating information-sharing,
collaboration, training and professional development, research, and communications. Our major activities include holding
members' meetings, disseminating information to members on environmental and grantmaking issues, managing a website
and members' discussion group, and undertaking research on environmental grantmaking in Canada.
CEGN is a national Canadian funders' organization inclusive of all types of grantmakers that is focused solely on
environmental issues. CEGN's members together provide over $50 million in environmental grants in Canada.
CEGN directly serves its members - environmental grantmakers in Canada. However, by helping to strengthen the environmental
funding sector, our efforts will also support the environmental non-governmental organizations (ENGOs) and ultimately
the environment itself.
