NGO Stabilization Fund

See all Funding Programs

Overview

Recognizing that many NGOs deliver essential services that support Government of the Northwest Territories (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 Northwest Territories (NWT) residents, such as organizations dealing with homelessness, addictions services, and shelters for women and families.

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.

Available Funding

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.

Deadline

June 3, 2024

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
