Centre Foundation is currently seeking innovative, community-focused ideas for its annual Centre Inspires grant of up to $100,000. Applicant organizations must benefit from a Centre Foundation endowment fund or partner with an endowed organization. The application deadline is July 26.

“The Centre Inspires granting program encourages organizations to think creatively about ways in which we can transform our community,” said Molly Kunkel, Executive Director at Centre Foundation. “Projects that are highly visible and serve a wide audience will be given first priority.”

Since its launch in 2014, Centre Inspires has invested $500,000 back into the community. Previous projects include: The Rivet, Good Day Café, Centred Outdoors, Food Centres, and Book Benches.

“We encourage organizations to think beyond their everyday mission, to form partnerships with other community organizations, and to brainstorm inspirational ways to make an impact in our community,” said Kunkel.

Applicants are encouraged to review the granting program guidelines and apply by July 26.
