How to Apply

 Inquiries are accepted on an ongoing basis and funding decisions are made in spring and fall.

Potential applicants are invited to make telephone or email inquiries directly to Shannon Butler. This will be an opportunity for your organization to introduce us to the work you do and determine whether you may be eligible to apply for a grant.

If you are eligible, we require a short proposal by email or mail outlining the following:

  • A clear statement of purpose of your organization
  • A description of the proposed activity, including a list of key participants and collaborators, and an estimated budget and time frame.
  • The amount of funding requested.
  • The legal name and CRA Registration number

Measuring our impact in the community is important to us. For larger grants over $1000.00 we request follow up and some basic reporting. The particulars will be determined on a case to case basis.


"It is not the length of life, but the depth of life."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."

Calvin Coolidge
