The Municipality of Port Hope offers donations to organizations and registered charities. You can request a donation for any amount below $1,000. If you would like to request more funding, we encourage you to apply for a community grant.

Annual donation requests

If you were interested in having your 2021 Donation request included in the 2021 budget, the deadline to submit the Donation Request forms was on Friday, October 9, 2020. To see the approved 2021 Donation applications please refer to our Budget and Finances webpage.

Donation requests for emergency relief during 2021

As per approved July 5, 2016 Budget Committee minutes, Budget Committee directed staff to provide a listing of annual requests for consideration during the annual budget process, allowing Committee to approve which annual requests they will provide assistance to. Any request received passed the specified deadline is to be denied, except for those requests that did not occur in the prior year. (i.e. Emergency Relief).

If you are requesting a non-annual donation request for emergency relief or an unforeseen circumstance in 2021, please complete the 2021 Donation Application. We will accept 2021 non-annual donation applications by mid November 2021.
