Applying for Grants

We have already awarded funding for 2014 projects. The deadline for submission of grant applications for 2015 projects is September 2, 2014. We are preparing a new on-line application process. It will be posted here mid-summer.

Check this resource list for other sources of funding. Click here for links to organizations that help to build capacity.

To see if there is a fit with our discretionary granting criteria:

  1. Please read the current guidelines for community grants for an overview on who can apply and what types of grants we fund.
  2. Take the eligibility assessment. Compare your project idea to the criteria that our granting committee uses to rate grant applications.

The Greater Victoria Community Funders Network's Grant Writing Handbook is an excellent source of information and can assist you when writing your grant application. The VCFN grantwriting workshop presentation also summarizes the Do's and Don'ts of grant writing.
