Non-profit organizations in Canada that are recognized as charitable organizations, provide services to those affected by HIV/AIDS, and have been in operation at least three years are eligible to apply. Additionally, organizations must meet the eligibility criteria on the eligibility questionnaire. What does the Canadian Community Grants Program fund? The Canadian Community Grants Program addresses the link between poverty and AIDS by supporting non-profit organizations that provide vital direct services to individuals living with HIV/AIDS. Our goal is to support programs and services that enable individuals to live as independently as possible, despite the many challenges posed by their health status. Examples of the kinds of services eligible for funding under this program include, but are not limited to: efforts to improve public policy and public services, food and nutrition, prevention and education, treatment adherence, transitional housing, and targeted outreach to high-risk populations. Our aim is to support direct services and advocacy most needed in communities most affected by HIV/AIDS, as evidenced by HIV/AIDS incidence and prevalence. We also try to fill gaps unfunded by other public or private funding sources. Priority will be given to proposals that have strong project evaluation/outcomes measurement. What won't the Canadian Community Grants Program fund? The Canadian Community Grants Program is intended to support the provision of direct care services. The M•A•C AIDS Fund will not fund the following: Partisan political lobbying Religious activities; faith-based organizations must provide services to all clients, regardless of denomination Capital campaigns Sponsorship of events Individuals Endowments, unless they provide a direct service to people living with HIV/AIDS Debt reduction Direct medical care or services Programs based outside of Canada operated by Canada-based organizations Requests from past grantees that have not met our reporting requirements or terms of past grants What is the grant range? Grants range from $5,000 to $50,000. Typically, our grant will not represent more than 20% of the budget of the program for which an organization is requesting support. The actual grant amount will be based on a number of factors including general operating budget, the number of clients served, the incidence and prevalence of HIV/AIDS in your community, proven program effectiveness, the size of your program, and the likelihood of ongoing support for the program from other sources. Please not that this is a competitive grant opportunity, and while you may apply for up to $50,000 CAD, we award very few grants at this level. We encourage you to consider requesting less than the maximum if you have not been awarded this level of funding from the M∙A∙C AIDS Fund prior to this year. /work/application/ International Grants http://www.cybergrants.com/pls/cybergrants/quiz.display_question?x_gm_id=2787&x_quiz_id=2498&x_order_by=1 International Special Focus Areas At this time, the M·A·C AIDS Fund’s international special focus areas are South Africa and the Caribbean.

The Affiliate Community Grants Program supports non-profit organizations located in countries where VIVA GLAM is sold.

Examples of the kinds of services eligible under this program include, but are not limited to: food and nutrition, transportation assistance, prevention and education, treatment adherence, and housing. The aim is to help fund those direct care services most needed in a particular community based on HIV/AIDS prevalence and the availability of other public or private funding sources. Priority will be given to proposals that have strong project evaluation and outcomes measurement components. What won't the Affiliate Grants Program fund? The affiliate grants are intended to support the provision of direct care services.
