External Grant

Suzy Hamilton Fund

Nominations are now being accepted.

Osprey’s Suzy Hamilton Legacy Fund honours the work of one woman environmental activist in the West Kootenay each year through a cash award. The fund was established in 2016 after the death of well-loved and dedicated West Kootenay environmental activist, journalist, founder of the West Kootenay EcoSociety and mentor to many, Suzy Hamilton.

The public call for nominations is a reflection of the high number of women doing phenomenal work in the West Kootenay on a wide range of conservation and sustainability issues. There is no official entry form. Entries should include the name and contact information of the nominee, as well as a short paragraph about the work they do for the environment.

Please send nominations to the Fund’s award committee at mclboyd@gmail.com.

"For me, this feels like a very full circle moment and like she's here with me. I'm honoured to receive this award."
