Community Fund for Canada’s 150th
The Community Fund for Canada’s 150th will activate a breathtaking array of initiatives and activities that will bring out the best Canada has to offer for the sesquicentennial. The Fund will provide communities with thousands of small grants to support local projects, distributed by participating community foundations from coast to coast to coast.
Broadly, the Fund will support thousands of local projects that:
- ENCOURAGE participation in community activities and events to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation.
- INSPIRE a deeper understanding about the people, places and events that shape our country and our communities.
- BUILD vibrant and healthy communities with the broadest possible engagement of all Canadians, including indigenous peoples; groups that reflect our cultural diversity; youth; and official language minorities.
The Community Fund for Canada’s 150th is a collaborative effort, delivered by Community Foundations of Canada and Canada’s 191 community foundations with the support of the Government of Canada as well as extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.
