Strategic Opportunity Grants support small to mid-sized Calgary and area qualified donees with small, time-sensitive, strategic initiatives that fall into one of two categories.
When charities need to transform into a new phase of their organization’s growth, direction, or sustainability.
When charities identify a unique opportunity to advance their work and only have a brief period of time to act on that opportunity.
Example initiatives include, but are not limited to supporting:
- Unique collaborations or participation in one-time events or learning opportunities
- Reorganization during and after a change in leadership or board renewal
- Small feasibility studies or evaluations for shared services, collaborations, or mergers
Grant request deadlines are noon on the 1st of each month.
