Apply for Support

Applications for support are brought forward to the Board on the first Tuesday of every month.


If possible, please complete applications by the previous Friday.

Things to Consider When Applying for Support

  • Professional references must accompany each application (examples of professional references include: teachers, doctors, social workers etc.)

      • Please note that the individual or organization receiving the funds can not act as a reference.

  • Please expect at least 4 weeks for processing applications.

  • The Foundation does not fund activities that have already started or are completed. Please submit applications well ahead of the start date of the activity.

  • Please make sure all information is filled out and that the contact information is up to date. Applications will not be processed that have missing information or if we are unable to contact the applicant.

  • The Children's Foundation of Muskoka reserves the right to request additional supporting financial documentation.

  • The Children's Foundation of Muskoka provides support for families with a total household income under $60,000. If your household income is slightly above $60,000, the board will consider your application on an individual basis. Please contact the Foundation via email if you find yourself in this situation before you apply for support.
