What’s Alive project successful with Shell FuellingChange™

The Hamilton Conservation Authority (HCA) and the Hamilton Conservation Foundation (HCF) are pleased to announce the successful securement of a $25,000 grant from the Shell FuellingChange™ Program, for the What’s Alive in Hamilton project.

The funding for the program will be used to educate the Hamilton community and help protect the environment in Hamilton. The What’s Alive in Hamilton project is part of the Natural Areas Inventory (NAI), a complete inventory of natural areas in Hamilton, created so that current information on plant and wildlife species, vegetation communities, and site boundaries is available for agencies which are responsible for protecting and enhancing natural features.

Background

Shell awards $1 million to Canadian environmental projects, chosen by its customers. Through the Shell FuellingChange Program, customers are invited to make any purchases at Shell service stations, collect Shell purchase receipts with voting codes, and vote for their favourite environmental projects on FuellingChange.com. To date, over 13 million votes have been cast by customers!

“The great thing about FuellingChange is that it empowers environmental and not-for-profit organizations’ efforts in realizing environmental initiatives, reach out to Canadians and get them involved in building a sustainable future,” said Shell Canada’s president and country chair, Lorraine Mitchelmore. “FuellingChange is part of the process of being proactive and discovering what environmental projects our customers care about.”

Environmental projects pre-selected to participate in the FuellingChange program are eligible to receive funding at three different grant levels: $25,000, $50,000 and $100,000. In addition, those organizations not successful in the voting process receive $10,000 for their project. A total of 31 projects will receive funding, totalling $1 million.
