end violenceGood day, Funds Fans!  Here’s more good news for those of you fighting the good fight.

Status of Women Canada is launching a Call for Proposals for projects that will contribute to ending violence against women and girls in Canada. All projects will include a number of predetermined elements, which organizations must address in their proposals.  Grants range up to $300,000+.  Deadline: April 17, 2015.

Proposed projects can address a wide variety of issues related to violence against women and girls, but must include, and will be assessed on, the following points:

  • focus on improving or transforming the environment that perpetuates or contributes to violence against women and girls or that puts women and girls at risk of violence;
  • confirmed key decision-makers and community leaders to work towards ending violence against women and girls within the project; and
  • potential to create sustainable change beyond the life of the project.

Eligible recipients include legally constituted organizations that are:

  • Not-for-profit, Canadian organizations, excluding labour unions, post-secondary educational institutions, and religious institutions;
  • For-profit Canadian organizations, if the nature and intent of the funded activity is non-commercial and not intended to generate profit;
  • Aboriginal governments (including band councils, tribal councils and self-government entities) and their agencies in rural and remote areas where there is a lack of capacity among non-profit and for-profit organizations; and
  • Territorial governments (local, regional, territorial) and their agencies in the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
