Get Learning Outdoors: GO Grant Applications due September 15th

Kids at June GO Grants Announcement with BC Parks

Teachers: there are only a few days left to prepare your applications for HCTF Education’s GO Grants.

GO Grants provide BC schools and classrooms with up to $600/class or $3500/school to pay for bus transportation, project materials, and leader/program fees for outdoor environmental learning experiences. Applications are due September 15th for field trips scheduled between September 15, 2018 – March 15, 2019. Applicants will be notified of results by the first week of October.

Thanks to a generous partnership with BC Parks, HCTF Education is happy to announce that more funding is available to help meet demand for this popular program. In total, BC Parks has committed up to $85,000 towards enabling young British Columbians to connect to parks and experience the benefits of spending time in nature.

Since 2012, GO Grants have helped over 35,000 BC students get outdoors to learn about their local environment. Full grant criteria and links to application forms are available here. For more information, contact HCTF Education at 250-940-9786 or email
