The Community Impact Grant is a grant program aimed at providing support to registered Canadian Charities. The grant was established in 2017 and is used to help provide funding to programs focused on supporting our communities.
Ecclesiastical will award the Community Impact Grant to specific programs that make a positive and sustained impact on the community. This year a special focus will be given to charities that are addressing the following key areas:
Environmental conservation with a human-centric approach.
Food security, hunger, and poverty related to food access and availability.
The Community Impact Grant is primarily focused on programs that require funding to get off the ground. A grant may be awarded to programs that are making a substantial change or branching into a new sector.
Yes! As you work through the application, there is the opportunity to save and resume as required. You can select the "Save and Resume” button included to receive a link back to your application. This will allow you to step away from the application and resume it at a later time.
Typically, grants are awarded in person via cheque by a representative of Ecclesiastical. We will review each recipient at the time of the awards being made, and determine whether grants will be awarded in person, or via direct deposit into the charity’s registered Canadian bank account.
