Community Assistance Fund

The Community Assistance Fund (CAF) was established by the Junior League of Edmonton to help meet critical, unmet, emergency areas of need in our community.  The maximum amount granted to one organization will be $5,000 and applicants may request funding for a period of one to two consecutive years.

The 2016-2017 Community Assistance Fund  Application is closed. Please contact us about future grant deadlines.

CRITERIA:  To qualify for a CAF grant, your organization’s need must fit within our league’s community impact focus of supporting children, youth and families at risk.  Our mandate is to align ourselves with projects providing children, youth and families with tools to develop their full potential.  We invest our resources today to secure a brighter future for the children and youth of Edmonton.

Organizations requesting funds must be:

  • registered charities
  • operate within the Edmonton area
  • support goals that are congruent with those of the League
  • have a specific and defined use for the funds requested

Requests will not be considered for operating or administrative expenses, salaries, funding drives, political campaigns or individuals.  Applicants must not have received a grant from the Community Assistance Fund for a three-year period prior to the current application.

GRANT PROCESS:  Grant applications must be received by grant deadline.  Applications are then reviewed and all applicants will be notified to advise the status of your request. Funding will be distributed in September of each calendar year.
