Searching for our 2019 recipient of support

Do you know any start-up charities in Canada doing amazing work to create positive change? Please let them know about the opportunity to work with us in 2019!

The Project Change Foundation is on the lookout for our 2019 recipient of support. Founded in 2015, the Foundation invests time, money, and talent to help kick-start early-stage charities in Canada with significant potential for creating social or environmental change. The Foundation focuses on supporting emerging charities who think big, connect with community, engage and inspire, make a difference, and respect the planet.

The Foundation will provide an investment of $2,000, as well as free advisory support and mentorship, to help the recipient organization to achieve its goals. Drawing on the expertise of our board and our network of talented volunteers, we assist our grant recipients with strategic tasks such as fundraising, governance, human resources, marketing, communications, etc. Here’s what our past recipients had to say about working with us:

  • “Working with the Project Change Foundation was an all-around fantastic experience. The diverse skill-set of their Board gave us the ability to involve them in a variety of different projects. With their help, we were able to improve our organizational capacity and implement new practices to ultimately make us more efficient.”
    – Natasha Thom, Director of Operations, The Lipstick Project Foundation (2016 recipient of support)
  • “Project Change Foundation truly walks the walk. 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.”
    – Emily-anne King, Vice President, Community First Foundation (2017 recipient of support)
