    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.
