    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. Under this program, non – profit child care organizations may receive up to a maximum of $500,000 and private sector child care organizations may receive up to a maximum of $250,000 for building a new child care facility including the cost of buying land or a building; the assembly of a modular building and site development; renovations to a building; and/or – buying eligible equipment and furnishings to support new child care spaces in an existing facility or as part of the above activities to create new spaces.  Deadline to apply: June 30th, 2014.

      Love this blog. One of my all time best resources for finding communities and non-profits money. Do you have any knowledge of an Alberta equivalent?? I’ve recently relocated and I’m working with a couple community leagues and First Nations groups that are in need of some resources.

      • findfundsblogger 10:11 am on December 12, 2013 Permalink | Reply

        Thanks so much, Matt! I’m sorry to report that I don’t know of a specific blog for Alberta. However, I did a Google search and many resources showed up. Please bear in mind that many of the posts here are valid Canada-wide 🙂 All the best, Fundsblogger

    Health Funding: NP4BC Program open again! 

    Nurses are Boss!Hey Funds Fans!  The NP4BC program has opened a second round for applications.  Deadline: 12:00pm noon on Friday, December 20th, 2013.

    The Nurse Practitioners for British Columbia (NP4BC) program supports the optimized use of Nurse Practitioner (NP) skills and competencies for primary health care by providing opportunities for NPs to be utilized as independent health practitioners, in collaborative inter-professional relationships with physicians and other health care providers.

    To support the further integration of NPs into the system, funding for up to 45 new NP positions per year over the next three years will be made available (2012/13 – 2014/15). Supporting the integration of NP roles will support increased access to primary health care services for high need priority populations and local gaps in care – frail elderly, chronic co-morbid, mental health and substance use, maternity, and unattached patients.

    All submissions must be supported and approved by the Health Authority with signatures from the Chief Nursing Officer and Primary Health Care Lead and by health care provider(s) collaborating with the NP. Submissions that do not have signed Health Authority approval will not be considered.

    NOTE: Funding under this initiative will not be used to fund NP positions in acute care practice settings.

    Make it happen!  Apply today 🙂
