Frequently Asked Questions


What is the Grant Selection Process?

How will the Grants Committee determine grant recipients?

How much can we apply for?

Some of the lowest grants we’ve ever provided have been a few hundred dollars and the highest grant was $50,000 over a 5 year commitment. In recent years we have provided around 20 grants a year. On average about $2,000 to $5,000 per grant.

What kind of things have you funded?

We support projects and programs where a moderate grant will have a significant impact. We typically do not fund 100% per cent of a project. Consider reviewing the list of Grant Recipients on this website in advance, to get a better understanding of what has typically been funded in the past.

Is there something you don’t fund?

We do not provide funds for ongoing operating costs, to support annual fundraising campaigns, cover deficits or retire a debt, to establish or create endowment funds, nor would we fund requests for sectarian, religious or political purposes.

We can not fund individuals.

When will we learn if our application has been approved to receive a grant?

The Executive Director will communicates the decision to the applicant and specifies any conditions applying to the awarding of the grant by end of June.

When can our organization expect to receive grant?
