Grant Workshop Coming Soon

The Community Foundation of Medicine Hat and Southeastern Alberta are accepting grant applications for spring 2011 grants.

Applications will be accepted until the close of business on March 15, 2011. Organizations must hold a charitable registration number from the Canada Revenue Agency or be a qualified donee under the terms of the Income Tax Act. The Community Foundation awards grants for charitable activities in the arts, education, social services, the environment, health, culture, recreation or any project that will maintain or improve the quality of life in Southeastern Alberta.

During 2010 the Community Foundation was able to make 133 charitable grants to 74 different organizations for a total of $211,802.00.

“We are pleased to give grants to qualified organization in Southeastern Alberta,” said executive director Mike Christie.

Community Foundation donations are held forever and carefully invested, with the principal of the donation never being spent. The interest earned on donations is then used to give grants to community charities.

The grants committee of the Community Foundation will review the spring grant applications and notify recipients in May. Grants will then be handed out to the chosen organizations at the annual Founder’s Day Picnic in June 2011.

To assist in the grant application process, the Community Foundation will host a “Grant Application Workshop” for all interested parties, Wednesday February 9th, 2011 at 12:00pm at the Medicine Hat Chamber of Commerce.

The Community Foundation of Medicine Hat and Southeastern Alberta has a large service area. Qualified organizations are welcome to apply for funds. For more information on eligibility or to receive an application, groups may visit or call the Community Foundation office at (403) 527-9038.
