Other funding opportunities

The Anglican Foundation of Canada distributes grants and loans to causes that are new or for which funds are not easily accessed or financed. Programs supported by the Foundation can include building projects, accessibility upgrades, creative arts programs, theological student bursaries, camps, Indigenous prayer and peace circles, and much more. (Note: You’ll need to apply through the Diocese, not directly to the Foundation).

The Bishop’s Company Fund provides discretionary funds for the bishops so that they might come to the aid of clergy and their families with emergency needs.

The Most Reverend Frederick James Hiltz Scholarship Fund provides funding annually to active clergy of the Diocese of Toronto, members of religious orders, postulants and laity, including Diocesan Centre and parish staff, to attend courses at St. George’s College in Jerusalem. You’ll need to apply through the Diocese, not directly to the Fund. Learn more by reviewing the scholarship guidelines and application form.

Active clergy in the Diocese of Toronto, as well as some diocesan lay staff, may be eligible for Professional Development Grants (diocesan), Discretionary Medical and Dental Grants (diocesan) and Sabbatical Grants (National Church).
