Community Foundation Matching Grants

Program Overview

The Community Foundation Matching Grants program provides all municipalities or regional district electoral areas with funding to assist with the establishment of a dedicated endowment within a registered community foundation. Every dollar raised within the community is matched by Northern Development up to $50,000 yielding a potential endowment account value of $100,000.

A community foundation endowment fund will provide grants to non-profit societies for community and social enhancement within the community area, in perpetuity. Local decision making within the community foundation framework helps to meet local social and cultural needs and create both positive economic and social outcomes.

Funding Terms

Up to $50,000 matching grant per municipality or regional district electoral area into the same account of the community foundation.
