When you make a donation to our Community Fund, you help us respond to grant applications, urgent requests and other emerging opportunities. With this support, you also contribute to improving the overall well-being of our community.
Your donation will support:
  • Our Community Grants Program that accepts local grant applications across a broad range of causes, including social services, arts and culture, education, environment, health, and animal welfare. Each year, the program provides more than $1 million to more than 100 projects and initiatives that serve the residents of Ottawa.
  • Urgent requests that we receive from the community. While our capacity to respond to all requests is limited, we do our best when an emergency need arises.
  • Emerging opportunities with the potential to create positive, systemic change in our city. We’ll continue to tackle issues like homelessness, youth unemployment, and food insecurity.
