Grants to New Brunswick registered charitable organizations and schools for projects to enhance the quality of life for local residents in eligible regions. Priority will be given to organizations that address community needs, problems, resources, and challenges, and that have high volunteer participation. Activities must benefit residents of southwestern New Brunswick.

Funding Priorities

Fundy Community Foundation favors applications that:

  • Meet the needs of the community in coordination with other local grantmaking bodies
  • Address the root causes of problems in the community rather than symptoms
  • Embodies an efficient use of community resources
  • Involves an innovative and cooperative approach to the challenges facing communities, and
  • Is supported by volunteer participation, citizen involvement and/or funding from other sources.

Note: While FCF tends not to give grants to large budget capital projects, it will consider applications for seed money to raise funds for large budget capital projects.
