Young Edmonton Grants

February 15, 2015

From the Edmonton Community Foundation:

The deadline to submit applications is on February 15. Online applications can be found here.

The key to a successful application is an activity that is initiated, led, and organized by young Edmonton and area residents. Individuals (or groups), between the ages of 13 and 24 years, can receive funding to make their idea a reality. Grants range from $500 up to $3,000. To receive funding, applicants must partner with a registered Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) charity.

Please note that online applications, along with the reference/endorsement from the partner charity need to be submitted by end of day on Sunday, February 15, 2015.

Tips for submitting an online application:

  1. Applicants will need to create a user name and password to complete the application (applicants will be e-mailed an authorization link to move on to the next step; check the junk folder). Note: if applicants created a user name and password last cycle, they will need to register again (feel free to use the same user name and password).
  2. Applicants will need to include contact information for the partnering charity  (charity name, contact name, and e-mail address).
  3. When applicants (young residents) submit the completed application, they will receive an automated e-mail confirming their application has been submitted (please be sure to check the junk folder if the e-mail isn’t in the inbox).
  4. Applicants should follow up with their contact at the partnering charity to confirm the automated e-mail link has been received and the YEG project reference form has been completed. If the charity does not submit its information by filling out the YEG project reference form the application will be considered incomplete.

If applicants run into any problems or have questions while completing the application, please contact Edmonton Community Foundation via e-mail at [email protected]
