Social Innovation Grants

Social Innovation Grants provide Vancouver-based non-profit groups with opportunities to turn innovative ideas into viable projects that:

  • Create or enhance social inclusion and belonging
  • Address social change and complex social problems

To support and realize these innovative ideas, eligible organizations receive:

  • Project design and development support from coaches and mentors who are experts in the field of social innovation
  • An environment that encourages experimentation and testing

The City co-funds these opportunities with our community partner, The Vancouver Foundation.
