Small grants provide support for one-time, stand-alone needs, rather than contributing a small part towards a larger project. Requests typically range from $10,000 to $15,000.
Applications are open all year and will be reviewed monthly. For example, applications submitted in February will be reviewed in March.
The total funds available each year are $500,000 and will be distributed among successful applicants throughout the year. With that in mind, please ask for what your organization needs.
To be eligible to apply for a small grant your organization must:
- Be a registered charity or other qualified donee with Canada Revenue Agency.
- Serve the Greater Edmonton Area (includes the four surrounding counties).
Organizations are eligible to receive one small grant per 12-month period. Exceptions may be made when a charity is working in partnership with a non-profit representing a marginalized community. This is in recognition that there are systemic barriers to funding for some communities.Grant Application Portal
