About the Trust

Wettenhall Environment Trust (formally The Norman Wettenhall Foundation) began granting in 1997.

Support is given to projects that enhance or maintain the vitality and diversity of the Australian natural living environment. Wettenhall Environment Trust looks to support groups or individuals undertaking projects that will make a positive difference to the natural living environment, in land, sea or air, rural or urban.

Mission

The objectives of the Trust are:

  • to build capacity in local communities to effect long-term beneficial change in the natural environment
  • to support and encourage research into, and monitoring of, all aspects of Australia’s natural environment
  • to support education relating to our natural environment

Principles

Wherever possible, funded projects will:

  • result in long term improvement of the natural environment
  • be innovative and serve as a model for future projects
  • show collaboration with other groups, particularly grassroots groups
  • indicate clearly, and thoughtfully, how advice of the project’s outcomes will be shared

There are three grants programs that the Trust administers:

  1. Small Environmental Grant Scheme
  2. Landscape Restoration Program
  3. Leadership Development Grants
