Major Capital Grants

Major Capital Grants ($100,000+) will be considered for capital campaigns and large capital projects.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted all of our organizations. It’s a time of rapid change and uncertainty, and we recognize that our city’s charities are in flux as they respond to the crisis.

The Foundation is currently responding to the most immediate community needs and focused on maintaining operations. Therefore, we’ve decided to postpone our intake of Stage 1 Major Capital Grants to May 31, 2020. Stage 2 applications will be due during the summer and final decisions will be made before the end of the calendar year.

Please note: these dates are subject to change.

Please review the information below before submitting and application.


  • Your organization must have a registered charitable number from Canada Revenue Agency to apply for a Major Capital Grant. (This number is required to access the online application form.)
  • You may apply for one Major Capital Grant per calendar year. Organizations may apply for a Community Grant, or any special program grant, in the same year, but applications must be for different projects.
