What is it?
The NGO Stabilization Fund is an application based contribution program that provides short term support to NGOs who deliver critical GNWT funded programs and services to NWT residents. Eligible one-time costs include general management, governance, organizational development, and extraordinary operations costs. Collaborative projects that build the capacity of more than one NGO are encouraged.
What is the purpose?
Recognizing that many NGOs deliver essential services that support GNWT policy objectives, the NGO Stabilization Fund was established in 2009 to help stabilize or develop the capacity of crucial NGOs who deliver critical GNWT funded programs or services to NWT residents such as organisations dealing with homelessness, addictions services, shelters for women and families etc.
Examples of projects funded in the past include supports to help improve service to smaller communities and develop capacity, board governance and other training, strategy development, research projects, organizational planning and development, and transition support to stabilize operations, image update and other extraordinary general operations costs. Please see the chart below for a list of projects approved in 2020-2021.
The maximum amount that can be granted to an applicant NGO is $50,000 per year. In previous years, demand for support from the NGO Stabilization Fund has exceeded the available budget. To support more organizations, partial amounts of requested funding may be provided at times.
