Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $15,000 to Alberta registered charities in eligible locations for projects to benefit low-income children and youth under age 21. Applicants must contact the funding source prior to submitting a full application. Focus areas include education, health, and recreation. Funding is intended for organizations working in Calgary.

Funded projects must align with at least one of the following goals:

  • Each child is healthy, safe and has access to optimal health care
  • Each child is ready for school, experiences success in school and graduates
  • Each child has the opportunity to participate in recreational activities that help them to discover their talents and develop their full potential

Project grants are intended to support time-limited projects, seed or start-up activities, capital costs, one-time program costs, capacity-building or other similar endeavors.

Burns Memorial Fund is interested in a natural supports approach, which connects youth with positive family, community and peer relationships. Although a natural supports approach is not mandatory in this granting stream, preference will be given to organizations working from this perspective. For more information, see Working with Vulnerable Youth to Enhance Natural Supports: A Practice Framework in Supporting Documents below.
