    Funding Eligibility

    For more details on funding eligibility, please see UWPH’s Community Impact & Investment Plan.

    As part of the Community Impact Funding model, UWPH gives everyone in our community an equal opportunity to submit funding requests.  At present, UWPH is limited by the Income Tax Act to only fund registered charities and qualified donees as defined by the Canada Revenue Agency.   However, if an applicant does not meet this criteria, they could receive funding from UWPH if they:
         a. enter into a formal sponsorship agreement with an organization that meets this criteria and other eligibility requirements; or,
         b. enter into an Agent Agreement with UWPH for non-qualified donees .

    If you don’t think your project is eligible for funding, please call Megan Partridge (Director Governance & Community Impact) at 519-271-7730 ext. 225 to discuss.

     

    Investment Streams

     

    CLOSED – The deadline to submit an Expression of Interest for 2023-2026 Impact Funding was Friday, April 15, 2022.

    Impact Funding is intended for ongoing programs that are part of the organization’s over-arching structure and mission. The intent of offering multi-year funding is to provide increased financial stability for applicants and a greater capacity to measure outcomes achieved. The multi-year funding model promotes sustainability of services for the community by allowing organizations to concentrate more on program design, delivery and evaluation. Additionally, multi-year funding encourages longer-term planning, evaluation of impact and efficiency for both organizations and UWPH. It may also enable organizations to better leverage their positions for additional funding elsewhere. Multi-year funding facilitates efficient and effective use of staff/volunteer/organization time during the allocation process and enables both organizations and UWPH to engage in longer-term planning and outcomes measurement.
