Applying for Grants
Grants are made only to organizations recognized as "qualified donees" by the Canada Revenue Agency. This includes registered charities and municipalities. If you are not certain if you qualify, please call the Community Foundation.
Organizations seeking funds must demonstrate a strong and committed volunteer board of directors, fiscal responsibility, and effective management of resources. Partnerships and collaboration are encouraged. Projects that impact the largest number of individuals possible, with a modest investment of funds, are preferred. In general, grants are approved for needs not met by other funding sources.
Grants are made for definite purposes and for projects covering a specific time period. The Community Foundation prefers to make grants to organizations that are responsive to changing community needs. Innovative solutions and preventive actions are welcome.

- Mission statement or statement of purpose of the organization
- List of Board of Directors (if applicable)
- Detailed budget for the project for which the funds are sought
- Copy of financial statement for past year

Upon review of the application, the Grants Committee may request additional information.
At the conclusion of each funded project the Community Foundation will expect to receive a report accounting for the use of the funds received, and an evaluation of the success of the project.
The deadline for grant applications is August 15th each year and funds are generally distributed to successful applicants in late November or early in December.
