In 2015, we started the Project Change Foundation with a simple mission: to help make the world a better place by supporting and empowering people who are creating positive change. In the last two years, the Foundation has given small grants and other support to emerging change-makers in our community. Previous recipients include The Lipstick Project and Community First Foundation.
At our gala event on November 21st, we introduced the Foundation’s 2018 recipient of support, Binners’ Project. Based in Vancouver, Binners’ Project is dedicated to improving the economic opportunities and reducing the stigma faced by informal recyclers salvaging usable materials from refuse bins. They truly embody our mission of making the world a better place by creating positive social change.
The Project Change Foundation is a public foundation and registered charity that invests time and money in emerging Canadian change-makers. The Foundation acts as a catalyst, providing financial and free advisory support to help kick-start early-stage organizations with significant potential for creating social or environmental change in our communities. The Foundation is run by a volunteer board of directors, and is operated with almost no overhead. This means its funds are invested directly in the organizations we support.
If you would like to be added to the Project Change Foundation Talent Bank, from which we draw expert volunteers for our grant recipients to aid them with strategic tasks such as fundraising, accounting, governance, human resources, marketing, etc., please send me an email directly with some information about your skills on which we can draw. And please connect with me if you have ideas for how we can support the work of other change-makers and emerging leaders in our communities.
