Fondation communautaire du Grand-Havre

Together for education and community projects

 

Fondation communautaire du Grand-Havre

Established: 2016

Objective:

The objectives of the FCGH are to promote French culture and language and to increase the participation of members of the Acadian and francophone community within the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM). 

How the fund works:

The fund is administered by local community members and Conseil scolaire acadien provincial (CSAP) staff who are familiar with our region and our students.

  • The CSAP High School Scholarship Committees within the HRM will award scholarships to students. This financial assistance is available to Acadian and francophone students who have graduated in HRM and who wish to pursue post-secondary education (university, college or other), preferably but not necessarily in French, in Canada.

 

  • Community Project Grants to facilitate:
    • Activities to promote the development, outreach, and visibility of the community.
    • Promotion of community programs and services in French.
    • Leadership initiatives to enhance and support community organizations.

About our fund:

The Fondation communautaire du Grand-Havre (FCGH) was created as a result of joint agreements between the HRM and the Province of Nova Scotia with the Francophone community of Halifax. An initial contribution was granted to re-establish and strengthen relations with the municipality's Acadian and francophone community. On an annual basis, the Fondation communautaire du Grand-Havre (FCGH) is proud to announce scholarships and grants for community projects.

The fund will welcome donations, large and small, to create a long-term endowment fund to support Acadian and francophone organizations and students in HRM. Each year, a community selection committee will review applications and distribute the interest generated by the fund. Your help can take many forms:

  • a one-time donation
  • a recurring commitment
  • a donation for a specific project
