    NOW OPEN: Canada Post Community Foundation for Children 

    canada post community foundation

    Funding from the Canada Post Community Foundation for Children is now available. The annual grant application process is open, and the deadline to receive applications is April 5, 2017. Registered charities, school programs and community organizations are invited to apply for funding of projects consistent with the Foundation’s objective to support initiatives that benefit children.  Up to $30,000/proposal available and three Signature Grants of $50,000 each are also available. These grants would support the overall work and mission of national organizations delivering programs or support for children and youth. These Signature Grants would be the largest grants awarded by the Canada Post Community Foundation. .

    Outside of its Signature Grants, the Foundation will fund projects that support three primary focus areas—community, education and health.

    Funding will be allocated to projects that will generate maximum impact, creating lasting change for children and youth (up to the age of 21), in the following areas:

    • education programming to help children reach their full potential
    • programming supporting healthy children
    • building safe, kid-friendly communities
    • services for children and youth with special needs and their families
    • programs that promote the interest of children and youth
    • mental health programs for children and youth

    Organizations applying for project funding should either be based in the community or rely significantly on community resources to undertake the activities proposed or to achieve the objectives stated. Projects should involve capacity-building (i.e., the creation or expansion of services, rather than the maintenance of existing services; expansion may include augmentation of a service, addition of a service or inclusion of a new geographic territory). Capacity-building activities could include hiring and/or training staff or covering costs directly related to the delivery of a program (such as mileage, facilities rental, communications activities) or the purchase, construction or addition of new equipment or facilities.

    Full grant guidelines available here.
