Individuals and organizations are encouraged to contact program staff prior to applying.
The Metcalf Foundation’s Renewal Program supports exceptional individuals who seek to develop new skills as a form of professional renewal. The program is designed to enable transformative learning or action in order to provide these leaders with an opportunity to renew their ability to contribute to their organization and sector. Opportunities can extend to include residencies, attendance at retreats, participation in conferences or workshops, periods of specialized training or study with masters in the field, research, or travel.
While this program is a Foundation-level initiative and is not situated in any one funding program, applicant organizations must work in one of the three areas funded by the Metcalf Foundation:
-Through the Inclusive Local Economies Program, applications are accepted from organizations located and operating in the City of Toronto with a mandate that focuses on improving low-income people’s economic livelihoods and access to quality jobs.
-Through the Environment Program, applications are accepted from organizations working in Ontario to build a low-carbon, resource efficient, and resilient society. Preference will be given to individuals working within organizations that are aligned to our three environmental focus areas: Cycle City, Electrifying Movement, and Enabling Solutions.
-Through the Performing Arts Program, applications are accepted from professional theatre, dance, music, and opera organizations in the province of Ontario with a minimum of three years’ production history.
