There are a number of funding opportunities through the Community Foundation of Nova Scotia whether you are a student, a not-for-profit, or a charitable organization.

  • Our Community Funds often support organizations and projects within their region,
  • Our Donor Advised Funds are arranged thematically, and many of them often seek new initiatives to support in their area(s) of interest,
  • Our Impact Funds are typically granted on an annual basis, and will have calls for proposals in the Spring and Summer.

We encourage students to start thinking about scholarships as early as possible.

  • Visit our Scholarships page for a complete list of all our student awards

There are also a number of funds that grant to youth projects and activities, such as the Levenhurst Foundation, the Oliver Fund, and the Raphael Foundation.

To keep up with new funding opportunities, sign up for our mailing list. You can also submit details about your organization here, and our Grants and Engagement Manager will keep you on file for opportunities that come up that are ideal for your group.
