The Community Grants Program for Kingston is providing a granting program which provides grants each year to support projects undertaken by charitable organizations within the greater Kingston area. It is funded each year from earnings on our pooled Community Fund, Smart & Caring Community Fund and over 40 individual endowment funds established by our generous donors.
Twice a year, applications are invited for project proposals, which are reviewed by our local volunteer Grants Committee.
The Community Grants program provides grants in all the Foundation’s fields of interest: Arts and Culture, Community Development, Education and Literacy, Environment, Health and Social Services, Heritage Preservation, Recreation, Youth and Children’s Mental Health.
Preference is given to projects that align with our Smart & Caring Community priority areas: Getting Started, Food Security, and Community Engagement.
