The Project Change Foundation is a Canadian charitable foundation that supports positive change in communities across our country. We do this by providing small grants and other support to new or emerging charities with a clear vision for improving their communities or the environment.

Each year, the Foundation awards investments of $2,000 and provides free advisory support to Canadian charities that are in the early stages of development. The Foundation supports organizations with big goals around connecting, engaging and inspiring people to make a difference in their communities or the environment. Our goal is to nurture financially sustainable, well-organized charities capable of standing the test of time.

Expressions of interest are welcome from early-stage charities in Canada with significant potential for creating social or environmental change. 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’s goals and 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.
