Funds! Funds! Funds! 

Funding for B.C.Hey, Funds Fans!  This is my 400th blog post!!  Wow, and to boot it’s a three for three day today 🙂  Funding for First Nations arts programs and childcare facilities as well as funding to assist B.C.’s disabled persons live full and fulfilling lives.

BC Rehab is an organization working toward a British Columbia that is inclusive and accessible to all people.  They promote projects and initiatives that increase accessibility so that all people — regardless of their physical capabilities — can thrive, participate and contribute in their communities.  Through advocacy and fundraising efforts they are able to assist British Columbians who are living with a physical disability. Grants fulfill individual needs, such as personal mobility equipment, when individuals cannot afford to purchase such items on their own.  Deadline: May 23rd, 2014.  Grants range from $1,000 to $5,000.

The Canada Council for the Arts, Elder and Youth Legacy Program provides funding to Aboriginal arts organizations that help Elders pass on the many art forms being practiced to the next generation.  The program will also increase the Canada Council’s capacity to serve Aboriginal Elders of this country, giving them opportunities to work with youth and pass on their legacy of artistic practice.  Generally, projects should be designed as follows; the organization will choose the Elder who will work with their youth. That Elder will then help to decide the number of young people he or she will work with, and will help to select them.  Strong applications will demonstrate a clear link between the Elders, participants, the artistic practice being shared, and the expenses to be covered by the grant.  Maximum Grant: $20,000.  Deadline: May 15th, 2014.

Major capital funding is available from the First Nations Early Childhood Development Council to help with the costs associated with the creation of new licensed child care spaces.
