Estimated Size of Grant:

Currently, the Foundation will fund up to $600 of eligible costs. However, the Foundation may be able to source or leverage other funds to contribute to your project if eligible costs exceed $600.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations which hold charitable registration with Revenue Canada or are sponsored by an organization with charitable registration.

Ineligible Projects:

Grants will not normally be awarded for operation requirements, or to rescue an organization from a financial deficit situation; or to religious organizations, unless the community-at-large will benefit significantly; or to individuals (except scholarships); or to promote political, religious, moral or ethical philosophies; or for purposes which may be deemed discriminatory.
