Applications for Funding

The Raphael Foundation can only disburse to qualified donees and registered charities as defined by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).  Further details on eligibility can be found here. Grants to youth-initiated projects are required to be supervised by an eligible association (eligible charitable organization, etc.) that can disburse the funds and provide accountability.

Grants will be based on available funding. There is no pre-established amount disbursed, but grants are typically between $1000-$5000.

The deadline for applications is April 30.
