    Attn: Health and Social Development practitioners – $50,000 for intervention strategies 

    Intervention funding

    Hi Funds Fans!  If you work with children, please share this post far and wide.

    Data for Life Prize invites applicants to submit a successful but under-recognized life-saving intervention for children under five that deserves more rigorous study. Two winners will receive $50,000 each to fund meticulous, independent, year-long field studies of their chosen intervention.  Deadline: June 18th, 2014.

    Who can apply?
    Anyone – any organization or person can apply. The Prize is open to anyone who is in a position to save children’s lives but lacks the means to quantitatively assess the impact of their work. Practitioners fighting to reduce child mortality as well as researchers in this area are encouraged to apply for the Data for Life Prize.

    The goal of the Data For Life Prize is to save as many children’s lives as possible by identifying and strengthening under-recognized life-saving interventions that are highly impactful, scalable, and cost-effective, but currently lack scientific evidence of their impact. Accordingly, the winning applicants will propose studies that will yield previously unavailable proof demonstrating the efficacy of programs that deserve much greater support. By securing this proof, these programs will be empowered to save more lives.

    The Data For Life prize funds are intended to secure valuable pieces of scientific evidence that will save children’s lives. Prize funds may be spent on a combination of collecting field data where a life-saving intervention is deployed, the deployment of the intervention itself, or the capacity and personnel needed to deploy the intervention. The goal is to obtain the best evidence possible with the funds available.

    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.

      Can a registered society apply for any help?

      Sent from my HTC

        Hi Cindy. The criteria states that a registered charity, an elementary school and other qualified donees as identified under the Income Tax Act (Canada) can apply. If you can issue a tax deductible receipt then I would say, yes. Please contact them for more details. Everything is in the link. Good luck! 🙂
