Oakville Community Foundation’s Grants are a key element in how we enable and foster a healthy community.

‘BeCause Oakville’ , a newly named program for our annual grants, sees The Foundation transitioning from a general grant application process to an evidence-based, solution driven Request for Proposal (RFP) process. In 2018, we have sought proposals addressing one of the following three priority areas only:

  • Emergency Shelters 
  • Alternative Housing
  • Common / Centralized Intake System for Food

Complete details and results for the RFP submissions will be made public in early Spring 2018.
