Great Canadian Giving Challenge. Fundraiser. Greening Sacred Spaces. Resource Updates.
It’s week 4 of CanadaHelps’ month-long Great Canadian Giving Challenge where we invite our community to invest in us by donating to our campaign, Spirited Climate Action, and help us win $20,000. The more gifts we receive, the more likely we are to win the prize. With the dollars raised, we will be able to update our many resources and create new ones that engage the bounty and diversity of our network, expand our reach, and increase faith-based climate action in communities across Canada.
A quick look at our website and you will find that we have many programs and resources that support these programs. Greening Sacred Spaces (GSS) is one such program since 2003. It is our oldest, best known program.
A practical program, GSS assists faith communities with both the educational and spiritual dimensions of greening as well as the “how to” side of audits, retrofits, and generally reducing a faith community’s carbon footprint.
Over the years, we have had GSS chapters across the country. Currently, our GSS chapters are Ottawa, Halton-Peel and London.
We have developed a number of resources to help faith groups become community leaders in working towards a more sustainable future for all. Click on the links below to find out more about our:
- Case studies

Our network loves our resources, but we all agree, they need refreshing! When you donate, your gift will be used toward updating our resources to enhance inclusivity and reflect diverse languages, as well as for creating new ones via multiple platforms (visual and audio). Together, you will be helping us reach even more faith-group audiences, for even greater spirited climate action.
