Community Needs Grants Overview
Approximately 25 grants up to a maximum of $20,000 each will be selected.
The aim of the Community Needs Grants is to provide short-term support for organizations doing gender justice work, with a focus on smaller grassroots organizations, to meet a range of immediate needs. Applicants may apply for funds to cover existing program costs, to pilot new initiatives, to undertake timely policy or advocacy initiatives, to support organizational capacity-building or professional development, to build networks, and/or to cover operational and administrative expenses.
Community Needs Grants are made possible by the following generous donors to the Canadian Women’s Foundation:
and our many other corporate partners, individual donors, and private family foundations throughout the country.
