About the grant
The EPCOR Heart + Soul Fund offers organizations and not-for-profits the option of applying for one of three levels of funding:
Small grants: Up to $5,000 (Up to 20 available)
Medium grants: $25,000 - $50,000 (Up to 10 available)
Large grants: $100,000 - $200,000 (Up to 2 available)
Small grants are intended to support organizations or associations in creating community programming that provides a revenue source for artists or content makers. A minimum of 50% of the funding should directly benefit members of the arts/culture community.
Medium and large grants
Funding can be used to offset program implementation costs associated with transforming an event or program to a virtual format; transforming an in-person initiative to align with public health directives; or standing up revenue generating initiatives in new ways. Examples of how the funding could be used include: implementing measures to minimize the risk of virus transmission, costs associated with migrating to a virtual delivery system, modifying physical space to accommodate distancing, marketing costs to reach new audience, new production costs, etc. EPCOR will provide recognition kits that the recipient can use to highlight EPCOR's support of the initiative.
