Grants to Prince Edward County, Ontario registered charities and municipalities for projects in arts and culture, animal welfare, education, community development, and health and social services. The Foundation gives preference to new initiatives.

Successful projects will be characterized by many of the following traits:
- They build on existing community strengths and assets;
- They respond to clearly identified local needs and provide demonstrable enrichment to the community;
- They use resources efficiently and effectively;
- They involve meaningful partnerships;
- They strive for a significant and/or lasting impact;
- They benefit a wide audience;
- They show innovation, creativity, proactive thinking, and a degree of risk.

Preference is given to new initiatives but a promising program may receive more than one grant in its early years provided there is evidence that the program is developing successfully. An established program may receive a grant when it faces a new opportunity or an unexpected problem.
