Funders and Partners
Earth Path, in partnership with Achillea Endeavours, was one of 150+ organizations nation-wide to receive TD’s Canada 150 Common Ground environmental grant for revitalizing and engaging citizens in local green spaces. The grant supports our weekly nature programs and summer camps for youth, field walks for adults, and field days for schools. Thank you TD FEF!
Nature Connections is an Ottawa-based company focused on sharing earth skills: everything from permaculture, gardening, and survival skills, to sustainable food and farming, with the aim of re-connecting kids to nature and creating resilient communities. What started out as a passion for local and sustainable food developed into an effort to share the beauty and wisdom of the natural world through education-based events and programs. They offer creative ideas to meet people’s needs while giving back to the Earth. Nature Connections and Earth Path share ideas and inspiration and have partnered in the delivery of summer camps.

The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is an agency of the Government of Ontario, and one of Canada’s leading granting foundations. OTF awarded $108 million to 629 projects last year to build healthy and vibrant communities in Ontario. Each year, more than 3,000 applications are reviewed by hundreds of volunteers. Supported by professional and experienced staff, volunteers bring knowledge of local needs and a wide range of expertise to the decision-making process.
In 2013, OTF celebrated its 30th anniversary as a grantmaker and thought leader. To mark this important milestone, grant recipients past and present were invited to share their views on the impact the Foundation has had on their organizations, the people they serve, and their communities. We developed two short reports that capture how the Foundation has evolved over the past 30 years, and how it might move forward.
