WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR COMMUNITY GRANTS?
Community Grants aim to support our community. A non-profit is eligible to apply if it serves the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo including Fort McMurray, Anzac, Conklin, Draper, Fort Chipewyan, Fort Fitzgerald, Fort McKay and Gregoire Lake. The non-profit must also have a charitable registration number from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) or be considered a qualified donee.
If you are not a registered charity but wish to apply for funding, you can consider the following options:
- Make a formal application to CRA to become a registered charity.
- Establish a written partnership with a registered charity that would apply for funds for the proposed project. CRA recommends that the relationship between the registered charity and the non-charitable organization be formalized and documented. Click here to visit CRA’s website for more details.
- Start with a phone call to Wood Buffalo Community Foundation (WBCF), 780-426-0015 Ext 112, to discuss the online application process and eligibility requirements.
