Good News! More grants are finally available. You have until Friday, June 26, 2020 to submit your application.
DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC THIS GRANT PROGRAM IS TEMPORARILY ON HOLD. I LOOK FORWARD TO THE FIRST OPPORTUNITIY WE HAVE TO START BACK UP AGAIN.
Here are the grant opportunities from 2019:
How does one apply?
Applications are handled and administered through the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs (OAFC). Please visit: https://www.oafc.on.ca/jennys-heroes-canada-2020-ontario-fire-services-equipment-grant
Can we ask for less than $25,000?
Yes. Our smallest grant was for $1,700.
How are the funds delivered?
The money is sent from the Jenny Jones Foundation to the OAFC, who then forwards the amount of each grant to the respective fire departments.
Who decides on the winning grant?
All applications are vetted by a qualified and impartial panel in Canada as well as Jenny herself. The final decision(s) are mutually agreed upon by OAFC Executive Director, Michelle O’Hara, and donor Jenny Jones.
