Who Decides How Grants Are Awarded?
Each year, applications are sent to local organizations that are either registered charities, or are partnering with registered charities to advance a community project. Applications are reviewed by a sub-committee of the BTMCF Board of Directors. Grants will typically not exceed $5,000 to any one organization, but exceptions can be made if the Committee deems that a particular project justifies a higher level of support.
How to Apply
The Brian Todd Memorial Community Fund supports community organizations which, through their initiatives and actions, seek to :
- Improve health and wellness for Brighton residents, and
- Develop community assets that enhance recreation, safety, accessibility and the local environment.
Note: The Applicant must either be a charity registered with Canada Revenue Agency, or be sponsored by a registered charity or “qualifed donee” (the Municipality of Brighton is a “qualified donee” as defined in the Income Tax Act).
