Rose Foundation (WRF)
2007-08 funding - $8.5 million
The mission of the WRF is to increase the capacity of volunteer
non-profit organizations to develop and achieve self-reliance.
The WRF supports the volunteer sector by providing skill development
and training opportunities, preserving, promoting and recognizing
the value of volunteerism and by providing financial assistance
to non-profit organizations for projects that are social and
community service oriented.
Types of Grants:
The quarterly grant program provides grants to registered,
human-service, non-profit organizations to develop and enhance
their organizational capacity. The maximum grant is $50,000
and an organization's community fundraising must equal the
grant amount requested. Application deadlines are January
1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 and an organization can apply
for a grant once every three years.
The international development program provides grants to non-government
organizations to improve the health and economic conditions
for the desperately poor in developing countries. The program
can match or supplement the donations an organization receives
from the citizens of Alberta to a maximum of $25,000. An organization
can apply annually for a grant.
