Believe you can make a BIG difference a little help from us? We’re part of the Northern Lights Small Grants and Northern Lights Small Youth Grants.

There are no deadlines. Applications are accepted throughout the year. Our group will accept grant applications from people who reside in these communities. If you have an idea you’d like to try and if the idea helps people feel welcome and connected to your neighbourhood, we may be able to provide a grant between $50 to $1000.
