We were recently awarded with a Take Action Grant through The Arusha Centre, Calgary Dollars and the Calgary Foundation for our 2013 programming. We are grateful to previous funders, the Alberta Ecotrust Foundation, through the Youth Environmental Stewardship grant (2010).  . We also thank for inspiration and support of this project in its early stages.


Bullfrog Power helped us off-set the energy use at the 2011 and 2013 Meaningful Work Retreat with green electricity.

Community Natural Foods provided us with an in-kind donation in 2011. They have also recognized us with the Random Acts of Community program.

Ten Thousand Villages has provided Fair-trade coffee, tea and hot cocoa for the 2010 and 2011 Meaningful Work Retreats.



Local businesses Nurture Health and Wellness, Sunnyside Natural Market and Oolong Tea House have provided in-kind donations and discounts for our 2013 Retreat.

We gratefully acknowledge all funders and supporters. Without your support, the Meaningful Work Project would not have taken shape.
