Grants to Alberta registered charities for projects in the areas of education, health, and social services to benefit the local community in eligible regions. Applicants must contact the funding source prior to applying and submit an LOI prior to submitting a full proposal. The Foundation provides funds to local registered charities helping people in Edmonton and Kamloops.

The Foundation supports a wide range of projects. The areas of focus are health, social services (especially poverty reduction or poverty elimination projects), and education (including bursaries and scholarships for students attending post-secondary institutions). Other areas of interest include human rights and strengthening the charitable sector.

The Stollery Charitable Foundation funds a wide range of requests, including proposals for operational funding, capital campaigns, capacity building initiatives, pilot programs, renovations, equipment purchases, one-time initiatives, and special projects.

Applications for grants designed to provide creative solutions to social issues are welcome. Collaboration with other charitable agencies and/or co-funding opportunities with other granting sources is usually viewed favorably, particularly for projects exceeding $50,000.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Grants can range in size from a few thousand dollars up to $100,000 or greater. As a general rule, grants to first-time applicants rarely exceed $30,000.

Term of Contract:

The Foundation prefers to be considered as a granter and not as an ongoing funder. A grant usually involves a one-time donation. However, organizations may request a grant for a capital project with funding to be spread over a number of years or may request operational or project funding for up to three years.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Funding by the Foundation is limited to charities that are in good standing with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and that have a current charitable number issued by CRA.

Small, fledgling organizations can approach the Foundation for funds that may be more difficult to obtain from other funders.

In limited circumstances, the Foundation may consider providing funding to a national or international organization, particularly if the project in question involves direct benefit to either the Edmonton or Kamloops communities.

The Foundation is unlikely to support projects or initiatives that do not include plans for self-reliance - or other sources of funding - once the granting period concludes.

The Foundation does not usually fund:
- Travel
- Research
- Conferences
- Political or religious projects, programs, services, or activities
- Individuals
- Arts
- Environment
- Parks and Recreation

Pre-Application Information:

Letters of inquiry for consideration at the fall board meeting must be submitted by email by July 3, 2020.

Fall 2020 proposals, if invited by the Foundation, will be due in the Foundation's office before the end of the business day on July 31, 2020.

The first step in the application process is to contact Jeff Bryson, the executive director of the Foundation, to discuss potential requests and to gather information. Grant inquiries for consideration at future board meetings may be submitted on an ongoing basis.

Decisions on the awarding of grants are made by the directors of the Stollery Charitable Foundation. Meetings of the directors are held each spring and fall. The Foundation's fall 2020 board meeting will be held on October 17, 2020. Checks are usually provided at the end of October of each year, shortly after the fall meeting. If an application is approved at the spring meeting for time-sensitive projects, programs, or initiatives, early grant payments may be arranged.
