Call for Funding Proposals


The City of Calgary partners with local non-profit organizations to deliver preventative social service programs to Calgarians. These partnerships contribute to our overall quality of life and strengthen the non-profit sector.

2018 Capacity Building Program

The Capacity Building Program (CBP) offers financial support to help non-profit organizations deliver programs and services that build upon their existing programs.

The program is divided into two funding streams:

  • Support for organizational effectiveness
  • Support for addressing emerging issues in Calgary
    • Projects that address crime prevention

For 2018, Council has approved $750,000 for one-time capacity building projects, and $500,000 for crime prevention projects through the Crime Prevention Investment Plan (CPIP). The Capacity Building Program is an investment initiative to help eligible non-profits build their organizational effectiveness and address emerging issues in Calgary. CPIP supports crime prevention efforts by funding innovative community-based projects that address crime prevention through social development.​
