Inspirit Foundation ChangeUp Grants 2017 ($10,000 for Project Costs)

Deadline: September 25, 2017

Submit proposals for the second round of the ChangeUp grants by Inspirit Foundation. The ChangeUp Grants create opportunities for young people to initiate creative solutions-focused projects that address issues of discrimination and prejudice in their local communities. The one-time grants are for projects that implement creative strategies to open minds and shift attitudes that perpetuate prejudice and exclusion based on ethnicity, race or religion. Through the grants, Inspirit Foundation is particularly interested in supporting the development of effective, connected and influential young change leaders.

The Inspirit Foundation is committed to creating an inclusive and pluralistic society. They believe in the inherent beauty and strength of each individual’s diversity. This includes – but is not limited to – a wide swath of characteristics and social locations such as religion, race, gender, economic status, and ability. They envision a more inclusive and pluralist Canada where differences are valued and engaged, and everyone has an equal opportunity to thrive both socially and economically.
