Special ANNOUNCEMENT October 1 , 2015 

The 4Cs Foundation’s grant-giving focus is transitioning from project-based grants. We have begun to work directly with organizations in Halifax whose goals, values and work aligns with those of the 4Cs Foundation to build their organizational capacity and sustainabilty. 

As we transition, we continue to consider applications for project funding through our SEED grants. The criteria for project funding remains the same. Your project must have as a stated goal, and must demonstrate in the work plan, the intention to bring children together with other people from their community to work side-by-side for the duration of the project in a way that fosters connections and relationship building, while creating a community artwork or artworks.  Grants are available ONLY to charities and registered non-profit organizations within the Halifax Regional Municipality, Nova Scotia.
