Kingston Community Climate Action Fund

Are you a non-profit with a project to reduce greenhouse gas emissions? The Kingston Community Climate Action Fund is here to help. It supports eligible organizations in these areas: 

  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions 
  • Improving energy conservation and efficiency 
  • Minimizing organic waste 
  • Helping with climate adaptation and technology innovation

How the fund works

The Climate Action Fund helps local charities reduce greenhouse gas emissions and boost the economy. Here's how it works: 

  • Each year, the City invites non-profits to apply to the fund. 
  • The Kingston Environmental Advisory Forum works with City staff to check if applications meet eligibility requirements. 
  • The committee members recommend projects for funding to City Council. 
  • After Council approval, project summaries are posted online. 
  • Residents can support their preferred project by donating through Canada Helps, or at their local KCCU branch

Projects that need your support in 2024

We currently have on-going projects that require continued support.

The All Our Relations Land Trust has a pasture found at 1467 Hwy 15 that hosts an Indigenous food sovereignty garden, medicine gardens, a pollinator garden, and little forests. This land is stewarded by the Trust, members of the urban Indigenous community and allies. They have also partnered with community organizations including Little Forests Kingston.

Fundraising goal: $27,179  

Project snapshot: 

A licensed electrical Contractor with a specialty in remote off-grid agricultural sites will install solar panels on shed roofs. These roofs also double as a rainwater collection structure and will increase the volume of water storage.   

The panels will provide power for:  

  • A solar-powered irrigation system that will draw from either stored rainwater or from an existing in-ground well  
  • Recharging stations for electric batteries 
  • Lighting and other outdoor electric chargers
