WHAT IS THE RBC FUTURE LAUNCH COMMUNITY CHALLENGE?
The RBC Future Launch Community Challenge is a call to action for youth, aged 15 – 29, in more than 150 small and mid-sized communities across Canada. It’s made possible thanks to a $5 million donation from the RBC Foundation.
Globalization. Technological innovations. Climate change. An aging population. Urbanization. Demographic shifts. Everywhere we look, our communities and our country are rapidly changing, and the gap between the experiences of rural and urban communities is growing. In each participating community, youth and partner organizations will have the opportunity to team up and apply for a grant of up to $15,000 to support youth-led projects. We’re inviting you to come up with an innovative, bold new idea to address a local need. And then, if your application is successful, we’ll give you money to put your idea into action!
WHO CAN APPLY FOR A GRANT?
Youth and organizations are invited to team up to submit an application to the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge. All eligible applications will be submitted by a partnership between youth, aged 15 – 29, and a partner organization that is a qualified donee. (Don’t stop reading here, if you have a great idea and need help finding a partner, we can help you with this.)
Applications may be submitted by youth or by the partner organization. Each application will be required to demonstrate the role played by both youth and the partner organization. Each grant will be made to the partner organization, who would accept it on behalf of the partnership.
WHAT IS THE VALUE OF THE GRANT?
The Salmo Valley Fund is pleased to be able to make available one grant worth $5,000 to youth in Salmo and Area G.
