Grant Recipients

In providing grants the Catherine Donnelly Foundation supports charitable organizations who have demonstrated innovative and creative ways of responding to the urgent needs of our society.

Program Partners

Adult Education Initiatives

The Catherine Donnelly Foundation has committed $1.25 million over five years in support of Righting Relations (www.rightingrelations.org): a Women-Led, Pan-Canadian network of adult educators and adult education to bring about radical social change through political and economic literacy for a just society in Canada. Current partners in this program include the: John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights (www.jhcentre.org), the Mennonite New Life Centre (www.mnlct.org/) and the Tri County Women's Centre (www.tricountywomenscentre.org).

Environmental Initiatives

The Catherine Donnelly Foundation has renewed its commitment to Ecojustice for another five years bringing its total investment to $1.8 million in support of Bringing Environment Rights to Canada (www.ecojustice.ca).

Environmental Defence received a one-time additional grant of $30,000 in September 2016 (in addition to the $1 million previously awarded) to support the Redefining Canadian Policy on Health, Toxins and the Environment (www.environmentaldefence.ca).

Housing Initiatives

The Catherine Donnelly Foundation (CDF) is pleased to be engaging in a renewed multi-year commitment of $1.25 million in the fight against youth homelessness by partnering and working together with A Way Home Canada (www.awayhome.ca) over the next five years. A Way Home Canada is an innovative collaboration of organizations and funders from across the country, that together are aligning strategies and resources to affect real change on the issue of Youth Homelessness. With a ten-year mandate, the goal of A Way Home is to shift the focus from simply emergency services to prevention and the eradication of youth homelessness in Canada.

This signifies a total investment of $2.5 million dollars over 10 years from the Catherine Donnelly Foundation to prevent and eradicate youth homelessness.
