Announcement of Grant Opportunity

The Vancouver Foundation is pleased to announce that applications for the LEVEL BIPOC grants will open on July 15, 2024! These three-year, $150,000 grants provide flexible operating funding to registered charities and non-profit societies in B.C. that are BIPOC-led, BIPOC youth-led, and/or youth-engaging.

What does ‘BIPOC-led’ mean?

‘BIPOC-led’ organizations have at least two-thirds (67%) of their leadership team who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Colour.

Changes to LEVEL BIPOC Grants
This year, at least 60 grants will be distributed through two streams:

– BIPOC Leadership Stream: 40 grants
– BIPOC Youth Leadership Stream: 20 grants

The application process is the same for each stream, but the selection processes differ to ensure equitable access to funding.

Eligibility Criteria

Registered non-profit societies in B.C. are now eligible to apply directly for a LEVEL BIPOC grant without needing a sponsoring organization.

Application Timeline:
– July 15, 2024: Applications open
– August 15, 2024: Applications close at 12 pm PT
– August 16 to October 2024:Applications under review
– November to December 2024: Invitations for conversations sent to applicants randomly selected under the BIPOC Leadership stream
– End of December 2024: Final decisions communicated via email to all applicants
