Equal Voice Leadership Grant

Make a difference in your local community!

What is the Equal Voice Leadership Grant?

All 2019 Daughters of the Vote delegates are automatically eligible to be considered for a $1000 grant to be used following the in-person national event in Ottawa.

Grants will support delegates to accelerate advocacy efforts in their local communities.

Start thinking about your proposal:

  • How would you use $1000 to take action in your community?
  • Do you have an idea that brings neighbours and community members together?
  • How can you build support to move a local issue forward?

The funds must be used within 12 months of the in-person national event in Ottawa. Projects could include, but are not limited to:

  • Advocacy and social change initiatives.
  • Events and mentorship programs.
  • E-learning tools promoting local issue awareness.
  • Initiatives advancing decolonization and Indigenous rights.
  • Arts-based activism and workshops.
  • Community gatherings and knowledge exchanges.

Grant applications will be available in April 2019:

Delegates will need to submit a detailed proposal for their project, including a budget, and will be expected to submit a final report upon completion. Delegates are also encouraged to work together on proposals, where appropriate.  Equal Voice staff will provide support in the application process.
