Rebuilding Lives Grant Program by the Canadian Women’s Foundation
Applications close on June 20th, 2023
A national leader in the movement for gender equality in Canada, The Canadian Women’s Foundation is accepting applications/letters of intent for the Rebuilding Lives Grant Program.
About the Program
The Rebuilding Lives Grant Program supports organizations delivering direct programs and services to survivors of gender-based violence to rebuild their lives and to organizations undertaking regional or national initiatives that advance systemic approaches and effective practices to support survivors of gender-based violence. The intent of the grants is not for prevention, public education, or awareness programs. The program runs from 2024 - 2028.
Approximately 15 grants of up to $45,000 per year each will be allocated.
Interested participants can apply for the grant program in one of the two areas.
Rebuilding Lives: Programs and services that support women, Two Spirit, trans, and non-binary people, who have experienced gender-based violence, and their children.
Collaborative Projects: Sectoral capacity-building, policy and research, advocacy, and collective action initiatives that support systemic change efforts on a regional or national scale.
The eligibility criteria include
Applicants must be incorporated non-profit organizations and have a valid charitable number from Canada Revenue Agency or be a First Nations Band or municipality designated as a qualified donee by Canada Revenue Agency. Applications will also be considered if your organization is in partnership with another organization that is a registered charity or qualified donee with a mandate relevant to the proposal.
Gender-based violence programming, services, and/or advocacy are core or central to your organization’s mission AND your organization has significant experience offering programs, services, and/or advocacy initiatives with/for women, girls, Two Spirit, trans, and non-binary people who face multiple barriers and are underserved, including:
First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people
Black and racialized people
People with disabilities
Newcomers and migrants
Your organization has significant experience working with survivors of violence, such as shelters, sexual assault centers, women’s centers, sex worker organizations, and other organizations providing a continuum of services and connections to the community.
