The Aster Foundation Inc. is an independent charitable foundation designed to support environmental protection, conservation, and stewardship projects.
A resilient, self-sufficient, and innovative environmental movement in New Brunswick and beyond.
To support environmental organizations in their essential work towards a healthier environment.
What We Fund
The Aster Foundation provides financial, strategic, and educational support to eligible organizations undertaking environmental protection, conservation, education, and stewardship projects.
We aim to support strategic, high-impact projects that are under-funded or not typically funded by government funding programs, and in areas that tend to receive less support from large grantmakers.
