    Deadline Alerts: December 31st to January 31st 

    Deadline Alert!Hey Funds Fans!  I’ll bet you thought I’d dropped off the face of the earth 🙂  I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas and that the New Year will bring many good things to you and yours.  Here’s a little something-something to start things off on a positive note:

    December 31st, 2014. Grants from $5,000+.  The BC SPCA Community Animal Spay/Neuter Grant is a grant competition that will help communities across British Columbia address pet overpopulation.  Up to $87,500 will be distributed among successful applicants in 2015. The grants are available to registered animal charities and non-profits, municipalities, veterinarians, First Nation’s governments and tribal councils and BC SPCA branches.

    January 16th, 2015.  Maximum grant $50,000 USD.  The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) invites civic organizations, associations, independent media, and other similar non-government organizations around the world to apply for 2015 grant funding.  The Endowment’s programs are devoted to encouraging democratic political development. It generally does not fund projects aimed primarily at promoting economic and social development. Applications are encouraged from local, independent organizations for non-partisan programs seeking to: Promote and defend human rights and the rule of law, Support freedom of information and independent media, Strengthen democratic ideas and values, Promote accountability and transparency, Strengthen civil society organizations, Strengthen democratic political processes and institutions, Promote civic education, Support democratic conflict resolution, Promote freedom of association, Strengthen a broad-based market economy

    January 30th, 2015. Maximum grant $150,000/project.  Justice Canada: Measures to Address Prostitution Initiative .  Prostitution is a form of sexual exploitation that disproportionately and negatively impacts women and children and other marginalized groups. It is an extremely dangerous activity that poses a risk of violence and psychological harm to those subjected to it, regardless of the venue in which it takes place. The emotional and physical health consequences for those involved in prostitution are significant and, in turn, make leaving prostitution difficult.  Research shows that many individuals involved in prostitution have histories of victimization, and that they continue to experience victimization while selling sexual services.

    Funding recipients will include organizations that have strong partnerships and networks within their communities, have experience working with persons involved in prostitution, including conducting outreach activities, and have experience supporting and managing complex program implementation and evaluation. Eligible organizations include: not-for-profit community or professional organizations; provincial, territorial, regional, municipal and local governments/agencies; Aboriginal governments; and police services, universities and educational institutions/boards of education.

    January 31st, 2015.  Grants up to $5,000.  The William A. Burnham Memorial Fund is calling for proposals from people who are working with birds of prey, on bird species in the Arctic, falconry-related topics or other bird species program. Proposals should describe the basic biological question(s) being examined or other project being proposed. Awards are for one year and range up to $5,000.  Grants are open to people of all ages for use anywhere in the world.

    Sports funding in B.C.Hey Funds Fans!  Fyi… ViaSport administers sport-related grant programs funded by the government of BC that encourage sport participation and healthy living, develop high-performance athletes and improve delivery of sport and recreation programs to benefit all residents.  Current calls for application are open under the following themes:

Eligible applicants are invited to apply for funding of up to $2,000 for new and expanded programs that directly lead to new sport participation opportunities in their communities.  Deadline: February 11th, 2014.

    Girls Only:  The Girls Only grant category was developed to provide opportunities for girls and women in all regions of BC to participate in sport and integrate regular activity into their lives.

    Forever Active Bodies (FAB) 55+:  The FAB 55+ grant was developed to provide opportunities specific to women aged 55 and older in all regions of BC to help target an audience that does not receive the same level of opportunity and access to sport that their younger counterparts now have.  FAB 55+ provides funding for programs specifically geared towards getting senior women active and participating in sport programming that overcomes barriers and stigmas surrounding women in sport.  Maximum grant: $2,000.  Deadline: February 11th, 2014.

Through this exciting program, BC Ferries and viaSport British Columbia will assist with ferry travel costs for eligible athletes.  Applications for ferry vouchers must be received at least 12 business days before first day of travel.

    Other sport-related funding was posted the other day from the GoodLife Kids Foundation.  They are accepting requests for funding from registered charities and other qualified donees that provide opportunities for kids to benefit from an active life.  If your organization offers a sustainable physical activity program for kids ages 4 to 14 that will positively impact their present and future activity levels, then please review their Grant Program Criteria and apply using their online application form. Grants up to $10,000.  Deadline: January 31, 2014.

    Don’t forget that the January Deadline Alert is jam packed with other funding opportunities and I recently posted about funding for diabetes program support as well as for projects related to the preservation and revitalization of Aboriginal languages for the benefit of Aboriginal peoples and other Canadians.

    Aboriginal Arts Funding: $5,000 to $30,000 Deadline May 15th 

    Arts Funding

    Deadline: May 15th, 2013

    Hi-dee-ho Funds Fans!  Here is another May deadline that was not included in the Deadline Alert for this month.  Both of these Aboriginal Arts funding programs have a deadline of May 15th.

    Aboriginal Peoples Collaborative Exchange: National and International Project Grants are available to provide support for Aboriginal artists to travel to other Aboriginal communities to collaborate in a traditional or contemporary artistic practice. This is a multidisciplinary program that is open to individual Aboriginal artists, arts groups, artists’ collectives and arts organizations.  The program encourages social and community environments that support the development of Aboriginal arts and artistic practices. It aims to foster unique artistic relationships and networks through inter-nation collaborative exchanges among Aboriginal artists, across all disciplines.Individuals travelling within Canada may request a maximum of $5,000.  If they are travelling to and from a destination outside Canada, they may request a maximum of $10,000. Individual applicants may also invite international indigenous artists to Canada.

    Arts groups, artists’ collectives and arts organizations travelling within Canada may request a maximum of $20,000.  If they are travelling to and from a destination outside Canada, these applicants may request a maximum of $30,000. Arts groups, artists’ collectives and arts organizations may also apply for assistance to bring international Indigenous individuals or groups to Canada for their collaborative project.

    An additional cost-of-living allowance (to a maximum of $2,000 per month, for the duration of the project) may also be requested by, or on behalf of, an established Aboriginal artist. This allowance is in addition to the maximum grant amount and must be included in the budget submission.

    Also of note if the Elder and Youth Legacy Program through which Aboriginal arts organizations can help Elders pass on the many art forms being practiced to the next generation.  Maximum grant: $20,000.  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.
