Additional Eligibility Criteria:

In order to be eligible to apply for a grant, an organization must:

- Make services available without discrimination.
- Demonstrate fiscal and management responsibility

Non-charity or non-qualified donee
- A non-charity may partner with a registered charity or qualified donee in a Joint Venture Relationship to accomplish a project. This requires a written contract or formalized partnership agreement. Better Together - A Guide to Charity/Non-charity Partnerships, written and prepared by Katherine Main, is an excellent resource for both non-charities considering a project, and registered charities considering a request for partnership. We suggest both parties read this document before completing an application.
- The Municipality of Trent Hills will consider partnering on grant projects that address any of the following: Improvements to the following Municipal public spaces - recreation facilities, streetscape, heritage and cultural spaces, and green space beautification.

The lead organization delivers the approved grant project, with the Municipality retaining direction and control over the project funds.

Organizations should contact the Community Foundation first to see if their proposed project meets the municipal eligibility guidelines. If the Community Foundation feels that the project meets the guidelines, the organization must make the request in writing to the municipality no later than the end of September. The request must outline how the proposed project meets the eligible project requirements noted above.

The CSCF does not fund:
- Core operating costs
- Capital building campaigns
- Deficit reduction
- General fundraising activities
- Religious or political activities
- Sponsorship
- Endowment campaigns
