familiesforward supports community groups that provide parent-child programming in our area. We financially support projects that strengthen our guiding principles: learning and literacy; nutrition and physical health; positive parenting; and community capacity building. All funded projects must comply with our current funding guidelines.  The maximum funding for any project remains at $5,000.00.
Examples of funded programs include:

  • Family drop-in programs
  • Activities promoting learning, literacy, nutrition and healthy living at school open houses, family events and BBQ’s
  • Workshops for parents

If your organization has a project in mind, please contact our coordinator to learn how we can partner.
