The Calgary Youth Foundation (CYF) was created in 1994 as the first of its kind in Canada. Consisting of Calgary youth ages 12-18, CYF raises and distributes funds to youth-initiated projects. It’s about getting money to help make your ideas happen! Projects should be:
located in Calgary or surrounding area
directly benefit youth who live in Calgary or the surrounding area
planned and implemented by youth (we give priority to youth-initiated projects, although some adult support is welcome).
We give projects up to $2,000 per project, per year We do NOT fund: – for-profit ventures or individuals – conference fees or tuition costs The next grant cycle application is due October 17, 2017.
