Posted on March 04, 2019 by Canada Post in News Releases

OTTAWA – The Canada Post Community Foundation for Children is accepting applications for 2019 grants. More than $1.15 million is available for charities, school programs and groups that serve the needs of young people. Applications are available until April 5, and are open to national and grassroots local organizations across the country.

Making a difference

Since 2013, more than 660 organizations have shared in total funding of more than $7 million from the Foundation. The grants helped fund literacy and language programs, youth outreach services, gender and sexual diversity programs, arts and recreation projects, special education programs, childhood health programs, anti-bullying initiatives, mentoring programs, and many more.

About the Foundation

An annual five-week fundraising campaign makes the Foundation’s grants possible. Every fall, post offices across the country sell a dedicated Foundation stamp and accept donations, while some hold fundraisers, and Canada Post employees make voluntary payroll contributions throughout the year.

Information about the Foundation and its granting process and criteria, including answers to frequently asked questions about applying, is available on the Foundation’s website: canadapost.ca/community.
