The Community Impact Grant is our signature giving program in Canada.
Since its inception in 2017, we have supported 175 charities across the country. Grants are made to specific projects that make a positive and sustained impact on the community, by benefiting youth, vulnerable and under-represented people or by supporting our communities' unique cultural programs.
We administer the grants under the auspices of our charitable trust owner, Benefact Trust.
Grant applications are being accepted now.
We look forward to reviewing your organization's application and learning more about how your initiative will make a lasting impact on our communities.
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.
To Be Eligible
There is a rigorous review and assessment process involving our Volunteer Committee which is made up of staff from across the country. Based on their recommendations, successful recipients are then selected by the Community Grant Giving Committee, which consists of select senior Ecclesiastical executives, who work alongside an independent chair, appointed by our charitable trust owner, Benefact Trust.
Each grant application is assessed against the following success criteria:
