  • Applicant’s Organization must be a Canadian charity or a First Nations Band with qualified donee status with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).
    • Inspirit can only grant to a qualified donee listed by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). These are usually federally registered charities but many municipalities and First Nations are also listed. Not all non-profit organizations are registered charities.
    • If applicant’s organization is not a qualified donee, applicants might consider developing a trustee partnership with an organization that is a registered charity or other listed qualified donee. For example, applicants might want to approach an organization that works in the same sector, or one that applicants are already partnering with. Be aware that this is a legal arrangement with financial responsibilities.
    • Inspirit requires a confirmed agreement between applicant’s organization and the charitable partner/trustee before officially providing a grant.
  • Indigenous-led or Muslim-led organizations.
    • i.e. Organizations where the majority of the organization (board and staff) comprises Muslim or Indigenous people. Inspirit also consider how Muslim or Indigenous people are leading the application process and implementation, and how these communities are the primary beneficiaries of the organization’s work.
  • Demonstrated impact of work in Canada that addresses reconciliation or Islamophobia.
    • Organizations that can demonstrate stability and a clear vision of activities for the next three years.
    • Organizations that preferably have an average annual budget over $150,000 up to approximately $750,000.
