    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.

    Valentine’s Day Special for schools that LOVE reading 

    indigo love reading logoHappy Valentine’s Day, Funds Fans!  Here’s a lovely rose of a fund 🙂

    For those who wish to encourage reading, the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation is now accepting grant applications.  If your school identifies as high-needs, if you are passionate about literacy and if you believe your students and the greater community would benefit from a Love of Reading grant, then you are encouraged to apply.  Deadline to apply: Friday, February 28th, 2014.

    Qualifying schools are those that are challenged by socio-economic factors that put their children at higher risk. These factors may include a higher than average number of children from single-parent families, families with lower education levels or lower income levels. The children may face cultural, language or other barriers to learning. Any high-needs school that is working hard to foster a culture of literacy despite the challenges has the potential to be a Love of Reading school.

    Love of Reading schools receive funding over a three-year period. For each of the three years, the school receives 10 per cent of the funds in the form of cash to spend on any special projects they believe will promote literacy: after-school activity groups; visits by special guest speakers and artists; anything that promotes a love of reading. They receive the remaining 90 per cent of the grant in the form of a credit redeemable for new books and learning materials at Indigo, Chapters and Coles book stores.

    There it is, folks! Go get it!

    Deadline Alert: Up to $20,000 to support girls and women 

    Funding for women's issues

    Hey Funds Fans!  Some exciting news for organizations involved in issues related to women and girls.  Check this out!

    The MATCH International Women’s Fund is Canada’s only social innovation fund for women.  MATCH is unique in that they bridge feminist grassroots human rights movements and the world of social innovation.

    Funding is provided under two streams; Holding Ground and Breaking Ground.  This funding is available for the purpose of:

    • Providing direct funding and support for women’s rights organizations.
    • Providing scale-up funding for women social innovators.
    • Generating and leveraging opportunities to accelerate and scale social innovations that promote equality and human rights.
    • Identifying and promoting the value of social innovation from a gendered perspective.
    • Convening and collaborating to advance systems change.

    Both Holding Ground and Breaking Ground grant streams require that organizations meet these three essential criteria:

    • Are governed, directed, and led by women.
    • The primary focus is advancing women’s equality and human rights.
    • Have a demonstrated track record and community support.

    Please share and re-tweet within interested networks.  If you need help with your proposal, contact a Professional Writer today!
