Support Sustainable Waterloo Region

If you are interested in helping SWR achieve our mission and vision, there are a few ways that you can provide support:

Volunteer With Us

90% of our team is made up of volunteers, so we are always looking for passionate and committed people that are interested in helping out.  If you are interested in learning more about what it means to volunteer with SWR, visit the “Join Our Team” pages.

Spread the Word

We are always looking to scale our impact and share our story.  Subscribe to our Facebook and Twitter feeds to share exciting news from SWR and around the community when it comes to sustainability, and join our Community Update to be kept in the loop on the progress our members are making.

If you have connections in the community, or know of organizations that may be interested in joining one of our programs, please have them get in touch with us!  As a community-driven organization, it is your ongoing support and connection-building that will help us grow.

Support an Intern

Like volunteers, SWR’s interns are a key part of our team.  They come from a variety of fields, but each of them are looking to gain real-world experience with programs that are making a difference.  We work hard to ensure our interns learn a lot during their work terms that they can bring to their careers and to other organizations they will work with in the future.  We are always looking for intern sponsors to support these students in their work terms.  If you are interested in supporting an intern, please get in touch with us!

Growing Roots Program

If you are interested in making a financial contribution to SWR, we would encourage you to get in touch with us about contributing to our Growing Roots program.  This giving makes a significant impact in building SWR’s capacity to convert sustainability interest into action.  If you’re interested in learning more about the Growing Roots program, check out our overview document and we look forward to hearing from you.
