Up to $175,000/year (multi-year grants are available).

The Capacity Building Grant stream supports grassroots Indigenous charities, programs, communities, and initiatives (artists and makers) with the potential for significant impact. This grant stream commits to multi-year relationships which increase the capacity, networks, programs, and profile of the partners selected.

Grants are awarded on a case-by-case ‘needs’ assessment. There is no minimum dollar amount, but a ceiling of $175,000 per organization annually, for a maximum of four (4) years. Additional pro-bono services will be identified where possible in partnership with the applicant, and DWF will provide recommendations to augment the capacity building through the grant with the pro-bono services.

The 2024 intake period opens on Friday, March 22, 2024, and closes at 11:59 PM ET on Friday, May 17, 2024. Expressions of Interest must be received by May 17, 2024 to be considered for funding in 2024.
