The following information is excerpted from an announcement issued by Vancouver Foundation.
Vancouver Foundation has announced that applications for their Arts & Culture and Education & Training fields of interest will open in the fall.
The funding for Arts & Culture will prioritize projects that seek to influence or change systemic behaviours that inhibit the growth of artistic, cultural and heritage activities among diverse cultural communities.
The funding priorities for Education & Training are projects that work to ensure that children are socially and emotionally prepared to start school, to prepare young people to transition through and out of the education system, or that increase employment opportunities.
Applications for Arts & Culture grants will open September 5, and close September 29. Education & Training applications are set to open October 2, with a November 3 deadline.
More information on the types of grants available can be found at the Vancouver Foundation. There are also 'Featured Grants' stories online to showcase the kinds of projects being funded through Field of Interest Grants.
