Grant Categories & Priorities

 

General Community

General Funds were set up to provide the greatest impact on community needs. This allows SurreyCares the discretion to direct funds to the most critical needs in the City. We have made the decision to fund needs that are identified by our most recent Surrey Vital Signs report.  These may include Arts & Culture, Education & Literacy, Heritage, Successful Integration of Immigrants into Surrey Society, the Environment, and Seniors.

Special Needs

The SRS Vocational Services Society Fund and Seventy Times Seven Fund were established as Donor Advised Funds to support non-profit agencies that assist individuals with special needs.

Youth Initiatives

The Coast Capital, Surrey Youth and CIBC Wood Gundy Field of Interest Funds were established by donors who have indicated youth as an area of community need but leave the decision-making up to SurreyCares based on donor criteria.

Grant Criteria

 

These are some of the criteria for successful grants. A full list of criteria is released with the most updated Grant Application.

  • Not-for-profit organizations recognized by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) as registered charities.

  • Funding from other viable sources has been sought and/or obtained

  • Services/ projects/ events that will benefit Surrey Residents
