    $150K+ for indigenous climate monitoring projects 

    The impacts of climate change are already being felt across Canada and include social, cultural, ecological and economic implications. Indigenous communities are among the most vulnerable to climate change due to their relationship with the natural world, traditional lifestyles, and in some instances, geographic location.

    The goal of the Indigenous Community-Based Climate Monitoring Program is to support Indigenous peoples in monitoring climate indicators, which will provide the data required to inform community adaptation actions. In addition, the data can help address climate data gaps within Canada and improve climate models and weather predictions.

    The following organizations and individuals are eligible to receive funding through the program:

    • Indigenous communities and organizations (Métis Governing Member, Métis community, Inuit community, self-governing community, Land Claim Organizations)
    • First Nation band or tribal councils
    • Indigenous Individuals

    Deadline: Friday, February 16, 2018.  Project funding of $150,000+ is available.

    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.

    Up to $2,500 for collaborative history projects 

    History projectsHi Funds Fans!  Here’s a darling little fund for collaborative projects aimed at improving history education within Canada.

    THEN/HiER is the first pan-Canadian organization devoted to promoting—and improving—history teaching and learning by bringing together the multiple and varied constituencies involved in history education: academic historians; public historians in museums, archives and historic sites; practicing teachers; researchers based in faculties of education; and curriculum policy makers. Their goal is to stimulate an active, participatory dialogue among these various communities of history educators, a dialogue that explores how best to improve history education in all its forms through more research-informed practice (from kindergarten to graduate school) and more practice-informed research.

    Through the Small Projects Grant Program, each year THEN/HiER sets aside $25,000 to support small projects and events related to history teaching and learning in Canada. They welcome proposals from THEN/HiER partner organizations and individuals, including graduate students, as well as others engaged in history education research and practice in Canada. THEN/HiER will consider requests for support up to a maximum of $2,500There is no deadline to apply as they will consider requests for funding throughout the year.

    Proposals should indicate in the budget other sources of funding, including in-kind contributions. They should also clearly state how the project will involve collaboration across different THEN/HiER constituencies (for example, between teachers and academic historians, or between teacher educators and a public history organization such as a museum).

    Whoa! Big Funders are calling!! 

    raining dollarsGood day to you, Funds Fans!  Here’s another post that is jam packed with funding action.

    The Western Diversification Program (WDP) is the main program through which Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) makes strategic investments in initiatives that enhance and strengthen the economy of Western Canada. Project proposals for WDP are solicited via a Call for Proposals (CFP) issued up to twice per year. Projects involving all industry sectors are considered. Funding under the Western Diversification Program is available to not-for-profit organizations such as:

    • Industry associations, community and/or economic development organizations and research organizations;
    • Post-secondary institutions; and,
    • First nations as represented by their Chief and Council, Tribal Councils and Aboriginal-led not-for-profit associations and organizations.

    WD’s next Call for Proposals opens May 1, 2014 and closes May 30, 2014.

    The NIKE Foundation is dedicated to unleashing the potential of the 250 million adolescent girls living in poverty through insights-driven innovations, strategic partnership and solutions that can be scaled to enable and equip adolescent girls to realize their potential.

    The Nike Foundation has partnered with some of the most respected organizations and leaders in the development community to work toward a shared vision: that adolescent girls are embedded in – and integral to – the eradication of global poverty.

    We are seeking strong partners to realize this vision through strategic advocacy at the global and national levels.

    Funding levels:

    Global up to $250,000 for an 18-month period. Proposals should be designed to purpose and not to total budget available.

    National up to $150,000 (3-5 organizations in the range of $500,000 for an 18-month period)

    The list of activities below is not prescriptive, nor exhaustive, but provides organizations with an idea of the type of activities the Nike Foundation is considering for this initiative:

    • Developing and executing an advocacy strategy

    • Developing messages, messengers and outreach opportunities

    • Developing and producing advocacy and communications materials

    • Staff time to track, synthesize and analyze the post-2015 negotiations and to manage relationships with key influencers

    • Participation in relevant conferences, events and dialogues

    Organizations that wish to apply for funding for both RFPs may do so.   Deadline for both funding streams is May 16th, 2014.
