BC Grants

Growing Health in Kids … at Home, Across the Province.

There’s no place like home, and nobody loves his like Steve. Each year, the Steve Nash Foundation awards grants to child-focused non-profits that provide direct health and education services to underserved children throughout British Columbia, Canada. Funded projects improve outcomes for children by identifying and addressing underlying conditions of poverty, medical need, and restricted access to those resources that contribute to their well-being. The Foundation looks for organizations that work directly with children, or those that work to benefit children through social change and policy reform.  With a focus on actuating solutions to community needs, BC Grants is community investment at work.

The Foundation funds organizations working in the areas identified above, based on specific goals and strategies, and cultivates meaningful relationships to maximize our investment and impact.  Since 2006, the Foundation’s BC Grants program has delivered over $1M back into our community.

Please note that at this time, the Foundation is not accepting unsolicited grant proposals or letters of inquiry.  Future changes to our application process or status will be announced here and on our social media channels, @stevenashfdn.
