Application Guidelines

The Community Impact Grant program is national in scope. It is open to registered Canadian charities with a mission that aligns with Ecclesiastical’s values and deep-rooted commitment to “Greater Giving” — helping people in need and making a measurable impact on our communities.


At the end of your application declaration and consent must be made by a person from the organization submitting the Grant’s application who has appropriate authority (Board Member or Trustee) to declare and consent to the matters required. You will also be required to upload the following documents:

A list of current executive/board members

Most recent audited financial statements and annual report

Itemized budget for the program

You have the option to add supporting materials including marketing, collateral, audio/visual to support your application.

You can save your progress and resume your submission at a later date if required.
