The Fine Print

Upon submission of an application to the Stober Foundation, our foundation will undergo a thorough review process in which we will assess each individual application carefully in order to rank merit and determine funding potential/suitability based on an unbiased adjudication process. 

Our board of directors meets annually (August 15th) to discuss all applications. A member of our board may reach out to applicants to conduct basic due diligence and request additional information to determine impact and measurable performance targets where necessary.

Only charities, organizations, and initiatives that meet the Stober Foundation's mandates and objectives will be considered. Only one funding application submission per (calendar) year, per charity will be considered and reviewed. Due to EXTREME volume of application, NO follow-up response will be given unsuccessful applications nor submissions that fall outside of the aforementioned inclusion criteria and/or fine print. Organizations that do not respect this barrier may have their application removed from consideration. 

If approved, funding may be contingent on meeting with members of our board of directors to further discuss particulars of your project. Furthermore, both preliminary funding and subsequent renewals are contingent on annual meetings with our board of directors, submitting an annual project impact report, submitting basic project impact statements, and submitting basic financial reports after each fiscal year.

Please note, the only funding portal, open between August 1st through August 15th, is the ONLY opportunity for registered Canadian charities to apply for and/or submit funding requests. No unsolicited requests will be accepted or reviewed and may disqualify a charity for consideration.
