The PricewaterhouseCoopers Canada Foundation Leadership Grants Program provides funding for professional development opportunities for staff and volunteers who work at small- to medium-registered charitable organizations in Canada. Since the program’s launch in 2006, the PricewaterhouseCoopers Canada Foundation has awarded more than $773,000 in grants to 307 recipients.
Grants are available in two categories through a request for proposal period in the fall of each year:
Individual Leadership Grants: $2,500 for individual staff members or volunteers for professional development opportunities of their own design
Team Leadership Grants: $5,000 for teams of two or more staff members and/or volunteers (including the applicant) for professional development opportunities of their own design

All individual leadership grant applicants or beneficiaries proposed as part of the team grant application must be a current employee or volunteer at a registered Canadian charitable organization and have an official endorsement to apply from the charity’s executive director.
Priority will be given to applicants from charitable organizations or charities with an annual budget under $1 million or who work with a charity with a limited ability to support the development of their staff and volunteers.
Team leadership grant applicants must direct funding at an activity where all proposed beneficiaries work together to help enhance the overall effectiveness of the team. The grant cannot be used to fund portions of personal development opportunities, only portions of costs associated with an event involving the entire team.
A charity may apply for more than one grant however, the likelihood of a single charity receiving more than one contribution is low.
Grant applications must be submitted online by 8:00 pm EST, Friday, October 29, 2010. Late submissions will not be accepted. Faxed or emailed applications will also not be considered.
