Applicant organizations should be classified as 501(c)(3) by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service or 149(1)(f) by the Canadian Customs and Revenue Agency. Wilburforce Foundation will consider funding a limited number of grants for organizations that do not have these legal designations. If you are seeking a grant but do not have public charity status, please raise this early in discussions with a Program Officer.
Applicants who are interested in submitting a grant proposal must contact the appropriate staff member prior to developing a proposal. Please do not submit a full proposal without first contacting a Program Officer. Exact deadlines are not published because they are dependent on the applicant's conversation with the Program Officer.
