Grant Description
Grants of up to $20,000 to Ontario nonprofit charitable organizations in eligible regions for capital projects and programs that enhance the quality of life for local communities. Funding is intended to support activities that benefit youth and seniors within the focus areas of health, education, and spiritual care. However, other programs/projects may be considered on an individual basis. Eligible applicants serve the London area. Proposals must demonstrate the creative development of new programs that will make a difference to local residents.

All applications must provide clear and concrete objectives for the program/project for which they are requesting funding. Programs/projects should have a definite purpose, cover a specific period of time, and ideally will continue to have an impact after the grant is expended.

Grants are not made to establish or add to endowment funds.
