The Toronto Raptors Community Action Grant is a separate opportunity from the MLSE Foundation Community Grant, for which applications are due April 24th.
MLSE Foundation will award one grant in the amount of $50,000.
As with any grant, it is important to ensure your organization’s project idea and goals align with the mission of the grantmaker. In this case, that is “Improving the lives of youth by building facilities, giving to sustainable programs and empowering youth through sports and recreation”.
The MLSE foundation does not support capital campaigns, sport teams seeking sponsorship support, or projects that do not serve youth.
