Exclusions

Given the breadth of applications presented to the Foundation, Acts of Grace has made the necessary decision to direct its funding to specific areas. To that end, the Acts of Grace Foundation does not fund any of the following:

  • Individuals, government departments or agencies, start-up organizations, membership-based organizations (including political parties, lobbyist organizations, service clubs or special interest groups), places of worship, churches, denominations, dioceses or agencies thereof (especially where the purpose of these organizations is inwardly-focused at serving their own members or constituents);
  • Operational or administrative expenses such as rent, utilities and salaries;
  • Projects related to culture and the arts, environmental and resource protection and conservation, climate action and clean energy, industry and infrastructure development, legislation and policy reform, scholarships and bursaries, community recreation such as community halls and recreation facilities, libraries, zoos, parks and public spaces and, inwardly-focused projects aimed at serving an organization’s own constituents;
  • Requests to contribute to a charity’s unrestricted funds or general/annual fundraising campaigns, underwrite fundraising/promotional events, support lobbying efforts or pay for advertising and publicity costs;
  • Projects with significant portions of the work taking place and/or the project completed prior to the granting decision deadline (the Foundation does not make grants to retroactively fund a project).
  • The Acts of Grace Foundation does not accept Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) by mail or email. To view our full Granting Guidelines, click here.
