About Awards & Grants

Application for Funding

The Davies Charitable Foundation has periodic competitions for charitable funding. The competitions will entertain applications from the arts, education, sports and health. Applications will be accepted from eligible charitable organizations and individuals from the Kingston area.

Individuals seeking funding cannot receive direct funding and must be aligned with a charitable organization, i.e. a national sport organization. The available funding and number of awards will vary and will be made available with the announcement of the competition. Successful applications will be informed approximately 4-6 weeks after the competition. The Davies Charitable Foundation reserves the right to limit the funding available in a competition if all or some applications are deemed unsatisfactory. Subscribe to our mailing list if you would like to be informed of our upcoming competitions for charitable funding.

Any funding granted by the Davies Charitable Foundation must be made payable directly to a registered charity. Visit Canada Revenue Agency to confirm the Registration Number of your charity. Applications will not be entertained from those who have received funding of at least $2,500 from the Davies Charitable Foundation in the previous two years.

Application for Research Fellowship

The Davies Charitable Foundation has periodic competitions for funding of a research fellowship. The available funding and number of research fellowships will vary and will be made available with the announcement of the competition. Applications will only be accepted from post-doctoral fellows and medical fellows who were born, or lived in the Kingston area for at least 5 years before their 20th birthday. The research fellowship is designed to support the individual and not directly fund the research project. Applicants must have already secured research funding for their proposed project. Applicants will be judged on their contributions to their academic community to date and the perceived impact of their funded research project. The Davies Charitable Foundation reserves the right to limit the funding available in a competition if all or some applications are deemed unsatisfactory. Subscribe to our mailing list if you would like to be informed of our upcoming competitions for the research fellowship.
