Seed grants support projects that are designed to help you learn

Amount: From $5,000 to $75,000

Term: Up to 1 year

Seed grants are all about trying something new or untested, where the outcomes are unknown. 

All projects need to be focused on seeding new ideas or approaches that will drive at achieving greater impact in their community. The Seed Investment Stream focuses on four types of projects, which enable us to see positive change in our communities.

  • Convene around an emerging issue
  • Conduct a feasibility study
  • Research a new concept
  • Develop or pilot a new idea
