Established in 2005, the Kimberley Foundation is a charitable, not-for-profit organization that works to design and implement initiatives targeted to youth, educators and communities, that inspire, impact, and facilitate positive, environmentally responsible action and which build resilience and spark hope-based solution-making to mitigate the impacts of climate change.
Together we can Change Climate Change. Our signature Climate Collaborative for Educators builds climate literacy among educators, showcases Canadian climate innovators and launches new collaborative projects targeted to classrooms, schools and education systems. Our student created Climate Change Film Library (resulting from 4 years of student-focused programming) features original creations spanning animation to film noir and is a definite must-see.
Over seven years (2016-2023), the Hugh Morris Experiential Learning Fellowship supported graduate students (Masters and Doctoral) studying in Canada to undertake an experiential journey where they learned from leading researchers, innovators, policy-makers and community members; ultimately setting the stage to become global leaders in the fields of earth, environment and sustainability.

Learn. Connect. Flourish!
For five years, the "Pat Morris Communities Matter" initiative supported the lifeblood of small communities: libraries. Targeted to libraries serving populations of 10,000 or under, the Library Support Grant provided funding for acquisitions and programming. See the amazing work that libraries dreamt and executed to serve their community.
