Our research team is so good we sometimes forget that they’re people and not machines. In this week’s Opportunity Watch, we’re sharing some grants that support organizations serving specific populations. And yes, these opportunities were all identified by our great researchers.
The Canadian 99s promote women in aviation through several different programs, including the Canadian Award in Aviation, which was created in 1974. They support air cadets, as well as community groups, aviation museums and preservation efforts. Applications should be submitted by mail no later than August 31st.
The Weyerhauser Company operates in four Canadian provinces and supports communities where they have at least 50 employees working and living. Priorities for each community are defined at the local level but must fall within four focus areas: affordable housing and shelter (including helping homeless families get into permanent housing), education and youth development, environmental stewardship and human services, civic and cultural growth (including supporting the health and well-being of vulnerable populations and responding to local disasters). Registered Canadian charities should apply no later than August 1.
Based in Quebec, l’Oeuvre Léger supports families in need, street youth and the elderly in that province, as well as international projects in Latin America, Asia and Africa. Projects must have a measurable impact upon the community and the Foundation will not fund more than 40% of a project’s total budget. Consult their website for a full list of the documentation required and apply before July 1st.
Recognized as one of Alberta’s Top 50 Employers, First Calgary Financial is the province’s second-largest credit union. Their Knowledge Builders Grant Program offers grants of up to $2,500 to support the internal learning needs of registered non-profits. Calgary-area organizations that would benefit from training in leadership, planning, teamwork or organizational development should apply no later than July 3rd.
