Grants generally ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 to Prince Edward County, Ontario registered charities, schools, municipalities, and other qualified donees for projects supporting food security, learning, and transportation. Preference will be given to projects that provide a long term vision and plan and an innovative response to an identified need in Prince Edward County.

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.

Successful projects will be characterized by many of the following traits:
- Build on existing community strengths and assets.
- Respond to clearly identified local needs and provide demonstrable enrichment to the community.
- Use resources efficiently and effectively.
- Involve meaningful partnerships.
- Strive for a significant and/or lasting impact.
- Benefit a wide audience.
- Show innovation, creativity, proactive thinking, and a degree of risk.
