School Nutrition Grant:
The President’s Choice Children’s Charity School Nutrition Grant provides funding to educate and empower communities to deliver school-based student nutrition programs across Canada, helping children and youth realize their full potential in life.
School Nutrition Grants are administered directly by President’s Choice Children’s Charity and may be used to purchase food, equipment and supplies. Grants are intended to supplement the funding of existing programs, allowing for higher quality, more sustainable programing.
Special Needs Grants:
PCCC receives applications from families whose children have been diagnosed with a range of disabilities including cerebral palsy, autism, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida and various developmental delays. Applicants can request direct financial support.
The aim of this program is to remove some of the obstacles that make everyday living extremely difficult and make it easier for the child or family to cope with the disability. PCCC provides direct financial assistance in the purchase of mobility equipment, wheelchair accessible modifications physical therapy and more.
