ELFEC Partner Grant Program 2019
ELFEC is again offering a matching grant to any of our investment partner congregations and institutions to address social needs and/or environmental impact in their church community, as well as support for projects and new mission initiatives for their greater community.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for project proposals from partner organizations, which we can support with a grant of up to $2,000 but not more than 50% of the total project costs. Grants are available for activities that make a social and/or environmental impact. Grants will be awarded under any of the three following project objectives:
- Elimination of poverty in Canada.
- Reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and advancement of Indigenous social and economic goal.
- Promotion of the sustainable use of our environmental resources, including the atmosphere, land and water.

At the present time, all other ELFEC funds have designated beneficiaries to whom ELFEC makes annual grants. Currently, there is no opportunity for other charities to apply for grants from ELFEC. When this changes, we will post information on the grant application process.
