For students, funding is available in the Fine and Performing Arts, Health Care and Social Work, Sport and Recreation, Leadership and Community Development, Trades, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), Air Transportation, Finance and Management, Administrative Support, and Second Language studies.  Many scholarships are open to students from across the NWT.  The deadline for applying is May 15.

Grants are available for a wide range of charitable areas for capital related projects which improve social conditions or assist and advance other community activities.  To be eligible, applicants must be registered charities or organizations able to provide charitable receipts. Applications to the general Yellowknife Community Fund are accepted twice each year by March 31 and September 15.  Applications to our named Fund grants are accepted three times each year by March 31, May 15 and September 20.

Quote by Robin Greig, President of the Yellowknife Community Foundation – “The Yellowknife Community Foundation awarded its first two grants for $500 in 1996 and its first scholarship of $500 in 2000.  This year, through the generosity of many current and former Yellowknife residents, families and organizations that have supported us over the years, we are quite excited to be providing nearly $100,000 in grants and nearly $50,000 from 32 scholarship funds.

The Yellowknife Community Foundation was formed in 1993 to provide interested individuals and organizations with a means of supporting projects in our community for the enduring future. The Foundation is not singularly dedicated to any specific area of support. It embodies a simple concept – that people working together can make a difference.  For information:
