Foundation Search Pilot Project
Foundation Search may be the help you need to find a funder or grant for your special ministry or project.
The Corporations Committee of Alberta Northwest Conference has taken out a subscription to Foundation Search that allows Conference ministries and congregations access to a database of more than 10,000 Canadian foundations with over $40 billion in assets. These funders are particularly interested in outreach programs that benefit a wider community.
You can access the Foundation Search database through two ways:
- Our Conference Pilot Program: A person trained in using the Foundation Search database would help you find potential funders. You would also receive assistance in writing a grant proposal.
- By Purchasing a License: Five licenses are available for purchase by ABNW Presbyteries, congregations and ministries. A license holder has full access to the database as well as online training on using the database. Costs would be shared between the five license holders for one-time fee of approximately $500 each.
To be part of the Pilot Program or apply to purchase a license contact: Executive Secretary Lynn Maki, Alberta Northwest Conference United Church. Email Lynn Maki or telephone 780-435-3995.
