publication date: Jan 30, 2012
Green Shield Canada wants the nonprofit sector to know about its Community Giving Program, which provides funding for programs that further health and wellness in Canadian communities.  

Green Shield's Community Giving Program provides critical funding that community-based charitable organizations need to achieve significant, concrete results. Building on a philosophy of making health care accessible to all Canadians, Green Shield will contribute funds to support work in the area of health and wellness, health education and social services with an emphasis on programs that enable access to health and social services for the most vulnerable members of our communities, such as those that support:
  • Families, youth or the aging population
  • Physically, socially or geographically disadvantaged populations
  • Proactive disease prevention
  • Measurable results for sustainable impact
The Green Shield Community Giving Program is launched each year in February and funds are awarded in June. Applications are available online starting February 1, 2012. The application deadline is March 15, 2012.
