The Government of Canada recently announced the Social Finance Fund, a $755 million investment program focused on investing in equity work in Canada. The fund is available to organizations that operate a social enterprise, which is an organization that creates revenue through programs or services and then uses those funds to promote social good.
We want to hear from you!
This survey asks our members if they would be interested and/or eligible for this new fund. Thank you to all who responded! We learned that there is great interest in running social enterprises! The survey is still open and we encourage anyone who hasn’t completed it yet to take a minute and answer a couple of questions.
In addition to the survey, we will be hosting two capacity-building webinars about social finance and the available funding routes your organization can take either to launch or sustain programming.
