Event/Project/Research Funding

This grant stream is available for groups and individuals undertaking events, projects or research which support APIRG’s mandate and contribute to positive social change. Grants are available up to a maximum of $2000. Some examples of past grant recipients include speaker or workshop series, publishable academic or journalistic research, and community events.

Please read Event/Project/Research Funding Info for eligibility details, stipulations and funding priorities.



Application Process

A complete application consists of three parts: 1) the application, 2) a full budget, and 3) a budget worksheet outlining which costs you wish covered by APIRG. The APIRG staff are happy to consult with you before you begin an application, or while it is in progress.

  1. Contact the Programming Coordinator at programming@apirg.org with any questions about your eligibility or application.
  2. Read our Language and Anti-Oppression document to help you write a strong application.
  3. Complete the application form. If you require paper copies, please contact the Programming Coordinator.
  4. Attach a full budget for your event when prompted in the form.
  5. Attach the Budget Worksheet when prompted in the form.
  6. We will notify you of our decision within 4-6 weeks of the funding deadline

If you have questions about any part of the application process, please contact the Outreach Coordinator at outreach@apirg.org. If any part of this process is inaccessible or difficult for you (reading, writing, budgeting, etc) we would be glad to help!
