Vancouver Foundation Investment Readiness Program Info Session in person in Surrey at Surrey City Centre Library.

About this Event

Attend an information session hosted by Vancouver Foundation to learn more about the Investment Readiness Program (IRP). The IRP is a federally funded initiative for social purpose organizations to become investment ready and participate in Canada’s social finance market.

Non-profits, charities, co-ops, and for-profit social enterprises in Metro Vancouver and regions not covered by other partners in the program can apply for up to $100,000 of non-repayable funding to research, launch, design, measure, and scale up a social enterprise.

For more details, visit https://www.vancouverfoundation.ca/grants/investment-readiness-program.

The first call for applications opens January 8, 2020 to February 10, 2020.

To help you decide if this opportunity is right for you, attend this information session if you’re from a social purpose organization, which can include:

  • registered charities
  • incorporated non-profit organizations
  • non-profit co-operatives
  • market sector co-operatives
  • private social enterprise businesses advancing a social, cultural, or environmental mission (for-profit social enterprise), and
  • hybrid entities such as Community Contribution Companies

And:

  • Have, or plan to operate, a mechanism that generates revenue from the sales of goods or services.
  • Have a charitable number/be a qualified donee or a business registration number.
  • Demonstrate they have a plan, capacity and expertise to carry out the proposed project for which they are applying.

You’ll learn more about the evolving social finance market in Canada, the purpose of the Investment Readiness Program, and how to apply, followed by a Q&A period. An agenda will follow closer to the event date.
