CULE Solidarity Fund – Call for Project Proposals for 2018

February 2nd, 2018

The CULE Solidarity Fund is open for project proposals for 2018.

While we try to reduce barriers for possible proposals we strongly encourage applicants to review our mandate and terms of reference in advance to ensure the proposal falls within the scope of the Fund and can be considered. Also, while most of our Solidarity work is with partners outside of Canada, please note that we do allot a portion of our fund to Aboriginal initiatives inside of Canada.

For easy reference please check here for our mandate, terms of reference, and how to apply – http://cule.ca/fund-mandate/

The CULE Solidarity Committee commits to reviewing requests to discuss proposals and make recommendations to the CULE Executive. Requests are reviewed quarterly, with deadlines normally around the month-end of February, May, August, and November.

If the applicant is being recommended and/or supported by a CULE member, please include this information in your application. This is not a requirement for proposals to be considered.

CULE Solidarity Fund projects from recent years included support to volunteer union organizers in the Philippines, a contribution towards the rebuilding of a day care centre in the Philippines that also acts as a community centre for people’s organizations, and a contribution towards the Circle of Life Thunderbird House, which is the Spiritual Hub for all Elders, Healers, Teachers, Helpers in the Indigenous community in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

We look forward to continuing past solidarity partnerships and/or creating new ones this year!

In Solidarity,

CULE Solidarity Committee
