There is an annual limit of $10,000 per year per project.

    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).

    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.
