RBC Blue Water Project offers two levels of grants:
- Community Action Grants: These grants range from $1,000 to $10,000, and are awarded to local or community-based organizations in Canada, the United States or the Caribbean. We have established an application deadline for Community Action Grants, rather than accepting applications year round. This will allow us to review all applications in a fair and consistent manner. The application period for 2016 Community Action Grants is now open. The application deadline for 2016 Community Action Grants is February 18, 2016.
- Leadership Grants: These grants range from $10,001 to $100,000 and are awarded to organizations that are leaders in providing programs in North America and other countries where RBC does business. Interested organizations must submit an Expression of Interest. If your project qualifies for additional consideration, we will invite you to submit a formal RBC Blue Water Leadership Grant Application. Expression of Interest applications are currently being accepted for 2016 Leadership Grants. If your project qualifies for additional consideration, we will invite you to submit a formal RBC Blue Water Leadership Grant Application.
- 2015 RBC Blue Water Project Grant recipients must complete the Year End Report prior to submitting a 2016 grant application. If your organization will not be submitting an application, the 2015 RBC Blue Water Project Year End Report will remain active online until June 2016. The Year End Report is mandatory and fulfills the reporting requirement outlined in our policy and procedure guidelines. Please submit any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If your organization has been selected to apply for a 2016 RBC Blue Water Project Leadership Grant, or you have an interest in applying next year, please attend our 2016 Q&A Webinar which will be held on February 4, 2016. The webinar contains an RBC Blue Water Project overview, examples of best-in-class projects, impact measurement tips and answers to questions submitted by 2016 applicants.
