Grants to support community building activities and encourage participation in sesquicentennial celebrations.
As the country prepares to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, the Community Foundation will launch a new granting program dedicated to supporting local projects connected to this exciting milestone. Applications will be accepted beginning on Monday, May 30.
Canada’s 150th anniversary has the power to bring people and places together. Through these grants we hope to build community, inspire a deeper understanding of Canada, and encourage participation in a wide range of initiatives that mark the anniversary.
“This is a historic moment for Canada and we are excited to celebrate with our region,” says Community Foundation President, Dennis Hatt. “The projects that we select will build and strengthen our communities and create meaningful connections as we move towards a bright future.”
We invite you to be a part of the celebration by submitting a grant application. Applications for grants of up to $15,000 will be considered and projects must be located within southwestern Alberta. Submissions can be made online from May 30 – September 30, 2016. For more information on what types of projects will be funded, please visit our website at www.cflsa.ca/granting.
