Grants of up to $15,000 to Ontario nonprofits for programs in the areas of health, education, and spiritual care that benefit youth and seniors in the London area. Proposals must demonstrate creative development of new programs that will make a difference to local residents.
Westminster College Foundation provides grants to registered charitable organizations in support of programs or projects that help advance and assist in the fields of education, health and/or spiritual care, focusing primarily on youth and/or seniors. However, other programs/projects may be considered on an individual basis. All applications must provide clear and concrete objectives for the program/project for which they are requesting funding.
Programs/projects should have a definite purpose, cover a specific period of time, and ideally will continue to have an impact after the grant is expended.

The maximum grant available is $15,000.
Only non-profit charitable organizations with a charitable registration number in good standing are eligible to apply for a WCF grant. Organizations requesting funding must demonstrate that they have a strong committed Board, fiscal responsibility and management qualifications.
Grants are not made to support base operating expenses (including administrative salaries) of applicant organizations. However, salaries and expenses directly related to the program/project will be considered.
Any type of an administration fee tied to a request will not be funded through the grant.
Capital projects will be considered if there is a demonstrated need.
Grants are not made to establish or add to endowment funds.
