The Silver Dollar Foundation is currently reorganizing itself following the sudden passing of our founding President, Adam Steinberg. The Foundation is focusing on honouring existing commitments and is not able to issue new grants at this time. We welcome inquiries about future projects, and will update our website when the Foundation is accepting new proposals.
Academic Perseverance: The Silver Dollar Foundation will accept proposals for the 2018/19 school year in the winter of 2018, with a deadline for proposals of February 28, 2018. Granting decisions will be made and communicated in April 2018. New in 2018: Organizations that have received support from the Foundation for at least 2 consecutive years may submit requests for multi-year funding.
Capital projects: The Silver Dollar Foundation receives proposals throughout the year, with no deadline for applications.
For both capital projects and academic perseverance projects, eligible organizations are invited to submit a letter of inquiry with the following information:
– Background (mission, history, main areas of activity, etc.)
– Rationale for the proposed project, desired outcomes and activities to be undertaken
– Detail on the support sought from the Silver Dollar Foundation
– Information on other sources of confirmed funding
– Contact information
– Charitable registration number
Please note that support from the Foundation may in some cases be spread over a number of years.
Letters of inquiry and supporting documents (Annual Report, audited financial statements, etc.) should be sent to:
The Silver Dollar Foundation
PO Box 55016
The Foundation has limited staffing and grants capacity and can consider a limited number of projects each year. We will respond to all inquiries. We invite interested organizations to contact the Silver Dollar Foundation with any questions.
