Special Program Grants

Special Program Grants at The Winnipeg Foundation support specific programs or initiatives.

Organizations may apply to each of the Special Program Grants once per calendar year, as well as the Community Grants program; however, applications must be for different projects. Organizations must submit a final report on their previous Special Program Grant before they may apply for another grant in the same program.
