NEW Message to Applicants

As part of ongoing improvements to our City grants, we are excited to announce the upcoming launch of Foundant, a Grant Lifecycle Manager software that simplifies the grant application process for not-for-profit organizations. Foundant will officially launch for the myPG Fall intake in 2024.

Foundant is an all-in-one platform that streamlines the entire grant process, ensuring a smoother experience from start to finish. Some of the enhanced features include:

  • Preview the entire application before submitting your response.
  • Auto-save function to save your work and come back later.
  • Shared access to draft applications and ability to collaborate with multiple users on the same grant application(s).
  • Review previous grant submissions.
  • Copy from previous applications and pre-populated information to speed up the process.
  • Check on the status of your application.
  • Receive reminder notifications to ensure reporting requirements are met.

Further details, including support for setting up and navigating a user account, will be available in the upcoming months. We'll provide detailed guidance on how to set up your user account and complete your application in Foundant well in advance. Check the City's grants page regularly for the latest updates.
