Walking Together Grants support youth-led Truth and Reconciliation projects.
Walking Together is a call for proposals developed in response to The Winnipeg Foundation’s Vital Signs 2017 which identified reconciliation as one of Winnipeg’s most pressing issues. This special grants program is overseen by the Youth Advisory Council.
Schools and charitable organizations with youth committees are eligible to apply. Organizations must have a registered charitable number from Canada Revenue Agency to apply for a Walking Together Grant.
As you develop your application, we strongly encourage you to read the following:
- Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action [PDF]
- United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples [PDF]
- Emerging Trends in Philanthropy for First Nations, Metis and Inuit Communities in Canada: A Focus on Manitoba [PDF]
Grants of up to $10,000 are available for youth-led, one-year projects that respond to one or more of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action or an article of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Please review our Walking Together Grants Policies & Timelines [PDF] to ensure your project fits the criteria.
