The Canada Post Community Foundation for Children is accepting applications for 2020 grants. $1.3 million is available for charities, school programs and groups that serve the needs of young people. Applications are available until April 2, and are open to national and grassroots local organizations across the country. There are two types of grants available:
Community-Based Support Projects: Eligible projects increase the capacity of an organization. Such projects create or expand services rather than maintaining existing services, for example hiring staff or purchasing new equipment. Project grants can total up to $25,000* each.
Signature Grants: This grant is in place to contribute to the overall work and mission of national organizations that deliver programs or support to children and youth. Up to 3 Signature Grants of $50,000 each can be awarded every year.
The deadline for applications is April 2, 2020.
