Eligibility For All Grants

Charitable Status and
Partnership Agreements

Innisfil Community Foundation is a public foundation. This means that the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) only allows grants to be made to registered charities or qualified donees.

An applicant that is not a registered charity wishing to apply for funding from the Innisfil Community Foundation may do so as part of a partnership with a registered charity. A signed Confirmation of Partnership Agreement between the charity and the applicant must be included with the application.

If you are interested in applying for a grant and would like help finding a registered charity to partner with, please contact info@innisfilcommunityfoundation.ca
