The Fund for Gender Equality

*Applications arecurrently closed. Grants were awarded to the Cortes Island Women’s Centre, SCCA and CCHA. Funds will be recieved by the selected applicants in 2023.

The Cortes Island Community Foundation takes part in national Fund for Gender Equality.

CICF is proud to be one of the participating community foundations across Canada taking part in the Fund for Gender Equality in Canada, a new collaboration between Community Foundations of Canada and the Equality Fund which is supported by the Government of Canada. In 2022, the Fund will be hosted by participating community foundations who will make a total of $3.4M available to projects in their communities. 

We believe that to create communities of true belonging, we need to advance gender equality across the country. By participating in the Fund for Gender Equality, we and other participating foundations are also committing to a number of other actions, including an examination of our own organizational and investment practices for women. By catalyzing the community foundation movement and the thousands of Canadians we connect with each day, we believe we can do more than just foster gender equality. We have an opportunity to begin removing the long-standing barriers to it.
