Second Round of Community Fund for Canada’s 150th

The deadline for the second round of Canada 150th Matching Grants has passed. Thanks to all those who applied. You will be notified in early April 2017 if you are selected to continue to a full proposal.

Canada’s sesquicentennial is an historic moment with the power to bring people and places together as we dream big about our communities and our country. In the spirit of this moment, the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th will activate a breathtaking array of ideas and activities that will bring out the best that Canada has to offer, now and for future generations.  

The Community Fund for Canada’s 150th is a small grants program that will support community initiatives in all parts of Canada. The Fund is a collaboration between Canada’s community foundations, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.  

The Fund is based on grassroots leadership, and will take on a local focus and timeline in each community. For more information on the involvement of Sunshine Coast Community Foundation in the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th visit the application page or the FAQs page.  

Why is the Sunshine Coast Community Foundation participating in the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th?  

Partnering with the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th provides the Sunshine Coast Community Foundation with access to matching funding to make more grants to organizations within the Sunshine Coast. These grants will be responsive to local priorities, connected to Canada’s sesquicentennial and will foster a greater sense of belonging, inclusion and reconciliation in our community.
