Resilience Fund

The resilience fund is a one-time funding opportunity available to Guelph-based organizations that are a registered not-for-profit or charitable organization. It will fund organizational planning by building capacity to strengthen current operations as well as the future sustainability of the organization. Specifically, this allows organizations to access funding for planning related to core operations. This can include:

  • Strategic planning
  • Evaluation and measurement
  • Staffing and volunteer recruitment and training
  • Communications and marketing

The Resilience Fund is not intended to fund programmatic or service delivery. It is intended to enhance internal operations of existing non-profits. Successful grantees may include a reasonable allocation (up to 20%) to related overhead costs such as administration, staffing, rent, etc.
