About Small Change Fund: Small Change Fund is a registered foundation that enables environmental and social change at the grassroots level. We help Canadians (both individual and institutions) invest in local actions that make a difference for the planet. We bridge the gap between those who can offer support and grassroots groups that can use that support to build more sustainable communities, preserve biodiversity, and gain a voice in their own future. Small Change Fund is not a traditional organization - it is a growing, dynamic collaboration of actions by individuals across Canada. Small Change Fund is based out of the Centre for Social Innovation (Annex) in Toronto, a co-working space for social change with hundreds of entrepreneurs, start-ups and non-profits. And we have to say, it's a pretty awesome place to work.
