Grants to Carman area, Manitoba nonprofit organizations for projects that benefit local communities. Preference is given to projects that benefit the entire community, encourage efficient use of resources, employ new approaches to community problems, promote cooperation and sharing among organizations (thereby eliminating duplication of services), effectively utilize volunteer participation, and strengthen an organization’s capacity to be sustainable.
When approving grants, the Board may consider:
- The likelihood of the project to meet CAF donor wishes and interests.
- The ability of the applicant organization to fund its own activities.
- The vulnerability/need of the constituency that the application serves (e.g. children, seniors,persons with disabilities).
- The likelihood of the project proceeding without CAF funding.
- The question of whether CAF funding is crucial to the organization’s ability to leverage other support.
- The number of people who might potentially benefit.
- The influence the project may have on the future of the community.
- Geographic distribution of projects being adjudicated.
