Booster Grants

After the past two years, who would turn down an extra $1500 to pump up the budget for a project that works? 

Not Dufferin County charities. The Dufferin Community Foundation has been listening to you. Now that the peak of the  pandemic emergency has passed, we have brought back the Booster Grants to ensure that an existing, successful project gets that injection of cash to keep it going.

And our community is listening too! Your stories on our website and our press releases have engaged sponsors and other charities who may be willing to partner with you. They want to know more, and we’re happy to help tell your story of the way your projects create impact for those who need a boost.

As a charitable organization currently serving the Dufferin community, you are invited to participate in our Booster Grants by applying on-line or by mail. The winning applicants will be featured in Telling Our Stories on our website, in our annual report to the community, and in our social media networks. And, each of them will receive a cheque for $1500 thanks to the generosity of our sponsors.

To assist you in completing the application, our panel of experienced reviewers has improved our Guidelines.  Through these changes and tips on our website, we hope to shed more light on our criteria for scoring the applications and make your job easier.

Please let us know if you still have questions or suggestions.
