How to receive funds from Community Shares
West Island Community Shares is a charitable organisation dedicated to building a strong, resilient, peaceful and healthy community. We do this by supporting the development of established and new local community organisations offering services primarily in the areas of Health, Social Services, and Environment. Thanks to our generous donors and corporate partners, Community Shares raised and distributed $1.3M to 41 local community organisations this past year alone.
Funding is awarded to community groups based on the following criteria:
The organisation must be a registered charity with Revenue Canada;
The organisation’s field of interest must in one or more of the following domains: Health, Social Services, and Environment;
The organisation must primarily serve the West Island territory;
The organisation must be accountable to an independent Board of Directors;
The organisation must reach a wide range of citizens of all races, language, ethnic background living across the West Island Community.
How to apply: For organisations who have never received funding from Community Shares in the past, we will follow a two-step application process:
Step 1: Fill out this short document and provide a brief description of your project or organisation, expected outcomes, and the needs your organisation meets in the West Island.
Step 2: Should your organisation or project be retained for further analysis, we will contact you to fill out a full grant submission. You can expect to receive an answer towards the end of November.
