NOW OPEN: Canucks for Kids Fund and TD Financial Literacy Grant Fund

Hey Funds Fans!  The hockey season may be delayed but the Canucks are still busy behind the scenes with community philanthropy through the Canucks for Kids Fund.  Now accepting applications, this fund dedicates resources to charities that support children’s health and wellness, foster the development of grassroots hockey, and facilitate and encourage education in British Columbia.  Maximum Grant: up to $25,000 + (estimate).  Deadline:  February 15, 2013.

To be eligible to receive support from the Canucks for Kids Fund applicants must: Be a registered charitable organization with Revenue Canada, use support provided by the CFKF exclusively to benefit children and youth living within British Columbia, be able to provide a charitable tax receipt for the full amount of the donation and demonstrate opportunity for a strong branded community partnership with the Canucks for Kids Fund.  The Canucks for Kids Fund encourages proposals for project based programs delivered over a finite period of time. Continuing or renewable grants are not encouraged.

Also recently re-opened is the TD Financial Literacy Grant Fund which aims to increase accessibility to financial literacy education for people living in Canada who may normally be excluded from mainstream financial organizations, enabling them to develop skills, knowledge and confidence in financial issues.  Grants range from $25,000 to $100,000.  Deadline: January 31st, 2013.  Projects may be up to two years in length.

The Fund will gather and disseminate the learnings that emerge from the best practices of projects supported through the Fund and will evaluate and communicate the impact of funded projects.  Grants will be awarded to organizations across Canada.  Priority will be placed on projects in the following areas:

  • Innovation
  • Research & Development
  • Strategic Program Development.
