LCF is pleased to be part of a local committee working to reduce poverty.   Our involvement with this community initiative is a perfect fit with the foundation’s mandate to help create more inclusive, resilient communities for all citizens.

In 2016, the Skills Center in Trail sponsored an applied research project to provide insights into the conditions of poverty and to support the development of a poverty reduction plan for our area.

Get up to $750K in funding from Google.org

The Google.org Impact Challenge will grant $5 million to Canadian nonprofit organizations that are using technology to tackle the world’s biggest social challenges.

Five winners will each receive $750K in grant funding, and five additional finalists will receive a $250K grant. All ten organizations will also receive mentorship from Google and LEAP to help bring their idea to life.

The grant opportunity is open to all registered nonprofits and charities in Canada, and does not need to be a new idea. In fact, organizations can apply with a project that is already a work in progress. Apply before November 26, 2016 at g.co/canadachallenge.
