The McConnell Foundation funds activities focused on at least one of our three focus areas: Climate, Reconciliation and Communities. If your work aligns with our focus areas, it also needs to have the potential to be nationally relevant and to change systems, i.e. to address the root causes of complex problems.
This document provides instructions and a sample application for our focus area funding streams only. All proposals must be submitted on our portal so that they may be reviewed by our team. In this funding stream:
- There are no deadlines to apply.
- There is no maximum amount.
- Projects can span several years.
- Financial support is typically given to registered charities, but other types of organizations may also be supported.
