hands around a jar of money

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. Please note that the 2022 Community Grant program is now closed as of Friday October 8, 2021 and will reopen in September 2022 in preparation for the 2023 Budget.

As part of the annual Budget process the Municipality of Port Hope advises organizations and registered charities to provide their donation requests in advance so they could be considered to be included in the upcoming budget. The Finance Committee will still consider midyear requests for new initiatives, however any foreseeable requests are to be considered at the time of establishing the upcoming Budget.

2022 donation requests

If you were interested in having your 2022 Donation request included in the 2022 budget, the deadline to submit the Donation Request form was on Friday, October 8, 2021.

Donation requests for emergency relief

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).
