The Project Change Foundation is a Canadian charitable foundation that acts as a catalyst for creating positive change in communities across our country. Every year the Foundation invests time and money in change makers – those endeavouring to make the world a better place by creating positive social or environmental change. The Foundation focuses on supporting emerging Canadian charities who think big, connect with community, engage and inspire, make a difference, and respect the planet.

Expressions of interest are welcome from early-stage charities in Canada with significant potential for creating social or environmental change. Each year the Foundation will award investments of $2,000, as well as provide free advisory support, to help kick-start projects that produce specific and measurable impacts while contributing to community or the environment.

We are currently accepting expressions of interest for 2020. Please begin the conversation by telling us a little bit about your organization and the very special project you would like to put forward for funding and support. The more specific you can be about your project goals and its measurable impact, the better. For consideration in 2020, please submit your expression of interest no later than June 30, 2019. We look forward to hearing from you.

The financial support is always appreciated for small charities like ours, but above and beyond this, the support we received from the Board is what sets the foundation apart from other granting institutions. We are so grateful to have been a recipient.”
