    Deadline Alert: Sport funding for BC 

    Sports funding in B.C.

    Funding up to $30,000 is available from the BC Sport Participation Program (BCSPP) administered through viaSport. Deadline to apply: March 31, 2017.  Eligible organizations include:

    • Recognized or Accredited Provincial Sport Organizations (PSOs)
    • Recognized or Accredited Disability Sport Organizations (DSOs)
    • Multi-regional delivery agencies or organizations that demonstrate the ability to successfully reach a significant or specific target group and are provincial in their orientation (i.e. Boys and Girls club, Scouts, Big Brothers/Sisters, etc.)

    The goal of the BCSPP is to support the development of new programs or needed expansion of existing sport participation programs to different communities or target populations that align with Canadian Sport for Life FUNdamental, Learn to Train, and Active for Life stages, as well as the Awareness or First Contact stages. Programs will develop linkages with local sport service providers, clubs, and schools, to build community capacity and expand programming to attract new participants to sport and increase the number of individuals actively involved in organized sport on an ongoing basis.

    In another funding stream, micro grants from $300 to $1,000 are available through ParticipACTION and viaSport who have teamed up to deliver a micro-granting program that will support not for profit community organizations, schools and municipalities who are planning to deliver 150 Play List programs and events in 2017. The programs or events should be inclusive, open to all free of charge, or at a minimal cost, and give the participants the opportunity to complete one or more of the physical activities on the 150 Play List.

    These micro grants can support qualified instructors, equipment, marketing and promotion and other costs that will make the program or event even more impactful.  Examples of eligible on-going programs (at least 4 weeks) and events include: weekly try-it sessions, multi-sport or multi-activity programs, open-houses, tournaments, mayor’s challenges, try-it days, neighborhood fun runs, or multi-organizational events.  Apply by April 24, 2017.

    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.

    Breakfast anyone? Funds for breakfast programs in Canada! YUM :) 

    Thanks to fancynapkin.blogspot.com for this delectable collage.

    Hi Funds Fans!  Welcome to this week’s version of Tuesday; similar to last week’s version in name only.  What have we found for you today?  Let’s have a look.

    Yum!  Breakfast!!  Breakfast Clubs of Canada is a national organization dedicated to supporting community-based breakfast programs for schoolchildren. They raise funds for programs and help to sustain them by providing appliances, food donations and management tools. Breakfast Clubs of Canada assesses grant requests from registered not-for-profit organizations and/or schools that provide breakfast to schoolchildren living in underprivileged areas.  Eligibility includes programs that are already in operation as well as new program start-ups.  Applications are accepted year-round.

    Also, check out Breakfast for Learning.  Applications are due June 15th, 2012.  In 1992, a small group of forward-thinking editors at Canadian Living magazine identified a need to feed hungry children. They soon discovered that thousands of people across Canada shared their vision and wanted to help too.  This marked the start of a national movement that continues to grow today. Since our inception over 19 years ago, Breakfast for Learning has helped to nourish over 2.5 million children from coast to coast to coast.  As the nation’s lead advocate for quality nutrition in schools, we provide:

    • nutrition grants that allow programs to obtain food, equipment and staff required to meet the needs of their school community;
    • child nutrition education resources and tools to help raise awareness and educate communities about proper nutrition;
    • research to support the vital link between child nutrition and learning; and
    • a strong voice for child nutrition that advocates for national meal program in Canada and quality nutrition in schools.

    Breakfast for Learning is committed to helping start and sustain child nutrition programs, ensuring that students are well-nourished and ready to learn.  Applications are available here.

    Calling all Artists, Garden Lovers and Agricultural Innovators! 

    Since none of us were quick enough with the camera, this image came from panoramio.com

    Hello from Kamloops, Funds Fans!  We made it all the way from Ft. St. James to the Kam with only two pit stops; an incredible feat with four children in tow.  Bless their hearts for still being loving to one another when we arrived.

    Sadly, we did not see very much wildlife on the journey down; two deer as we left the Fort this morning and that was it.  Just before Williams Lake we passed by something called “The Monkey Forest” which sounded very intriguing but then we saw a badger crossing sign and our eyes were peeled for the next eight kilometers of their apparent crossing corridor.  Alas, no badger sightings either.

    Being tired and in need of some pizza, I’m just going to get to the point of this non-travel blog.  Here’s what I have for you today:

    Calling all Canadian Artists near and far!  The City of Ottawa Public Art Program invites artists to apply to develop, design, and implement a public art commission for the Barrhaven South Recreation Complex.  This request for proposals is an equal opportunity, open to all professional artists. Participants must be Canadian citizens or have permanent residence status.

    The total budget for this commission is $300,000 plus HST. The commission budget must include all costs required to design, fabricate and install the project.  Deadline: Deliver proposal by mail or hand, no later than Monday, April 30, 2012, 4:00 p.m. EST.     

    Evergreen provides grants to day-cares, schools and community groups for greening projects such as teaching gardens, food gardens and for protecting and restoring urban green spaces.  The next upcoming deadline is for the Toyota Evergreen “Learning Grounds School Ground Greening Grant”.  This fund is for schools wishing to create outdoor classrooms and food gardens to provide students with a healthy place to play, learn and develop a genuine respect for nature.  Grants range from $500 to $3,500 for publicly funded Canadian schools (K–12) and $500 to $2,000 for not-for-profit daycares.  Deadline: June 1, 2012

    The Investment Agriculture Foundation of BC (iafbc) is still accepting proposals under it’s Growing Forward program.  This funding will support projects that foster a culture of innovation and facilitate the adoption of innovative products, processes and technologies in the British Columbia agriculture, food and agri-products sector.  Project grants up to $25,000 are considered Small Projects.  Next deadlines: April 15, 2012 and  July 13, 2012.

    That’s all from here, folks.  Over and out from the Kamloopa.
