Our Grant Program
Grant Program Basics
What We Fund
Our Grant Program provides funding in three priority areas. We empower charities that are building a more prosperous and sustainable future, both in Canada and around the world.
- Children, Youth & Families
- Climate Change
- International Development
Turning Ideas into Impact
We respect every organization’s singularity and aim to offer a range of grant types to meet their different needs.
Each year we award several single year grants, and we’re also proud to have longer-term partnerships with a number of organizations.
All of our partners are achieving important work. We’re so humbled to play a part in their impact.
“Aligning with partners behind a common vision and funding their action is when excitement and passion for positive change is truly ignited.”
A strategic direction for 2022 and beyond
It’s an exciting time of growth at the Peter Gilgan Foundation. After a period of reflection and strategic review we have a refreshed direction that centres around sustainability, equity, and reconciliation.
A redoubled focus on the fight against climate change and several new themes under our other priorities mean we will be deepening relationships, engaging new partners, and growing our team.
