Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Brandon area nonprofit organizations to benefit city residents and the surrounding communities of Western Manitoba. Funding is intended for a wide range of community projects in the areas of arts and culture, health, recreation, heritage, environment, social issues, and programs specifically benefiting seniors and children.

Proposals must:

- Not duplicate existing services or, if so, demonstrate that the overlap is warranted;
- Demonstrate inclusiveness and respect for cultural diversity;
- Provide evidence of collaboration/funding sources with other community agencies;
- Demonstrate a reasonable probability of ongoing support from other funding sources in the future, or clearly indicate that the project is intended to continue for only a limited time span.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Non-profit organizations registered with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) may apply. Projects must be located in, or be of direct benefit to the citizens of Brandon and the surrounding communities of Western Manitoba.

If you are not a registered charity but wish to apply for funding, you can consider the following options:
– Make a formal application to CRA to become a registered charity.
– Establish a written partnership with a registered charity that would apply for funds for the proposed project. CRA recommends that the relationship between the registered charity and the non-charitable organization be formalized and documented.
– Note that the opportunity to apply with a charitable partner is not meant to allow groups to circumvent CRA rules, but rather to support genuine partnerships between charities and non-profits.
See CRA's policy here: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/chrts-gvng/chrts/plcy/cgd/ntrmdry-eng.html

Applicants must have other funding Partners financially committed to the project. (BACF can not be the only financial source of funding.) Organizations must demonstrate responsible financial and legal accountability, and be well governed and managed.

Organizations that have previously received funding from BACF and that have not completed the formal reporting requirements will not be considered for funding.

- Endowments
