Funding for financial literacy and youth science projects

More funding!Good day Funds Fans!  Here are a couple of funding sources for you to have a look at today.  Don’t forget to have a look at the July Deadline Alerts posted earlier this month as there are several funding opportunities coming due soon.

The TD Financial Literacy Grant Fund 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.  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 range from $25,000 to $100,000. Projects may be up to two years in length.  Deadlines: September 19th, 2013, January 30th, 2014 and April 17th, 2014.  Grants will be awarded to organizations across Canada. Priority will be placed on projects in the following areas: Innovation, Research & Development, and Strategic Program Development.

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) PromoScience program offers financial support for organizations working with young Canadians to promote an understanding of science and engineering (including mathematics and technology). Organizations may request funds for up to three years at a time.  Maximum Grant: +$100,000/yr. and under.  Deadline: September 15th, 2013.  PromoScience supports hands-on learning experiences for young students and their science teachers. Grants may be used to cover improvements to program content or delivery, as well as for new programs and activities. Grants can also be used to cover operational costs such as salaries, travel, postage, materials and supplies, provided that they relate to the promotion of science and engineering. Please note that grants may not be used to support research or program evaluations. Details on the eligibility of expenses are contained in the Use of Grant Funds section of the PromoScience Grants Guide.
