Community Investment and Funding

Our Community Investment Program is committed to giving to communities where we live and work. Through community donations and local sponsorships, we are helping to build safe communities.

We support programs, events and initiatives that focus on safety training and safe play. However, we encourage you to submit an application explaining how your program, event or initiative will make your communities safer.

Who do we support?

Preference is given to organizations that are:

Donation & Sponsorship Requests

We provide donations to community projects, initiatives and programs that align with our commitment to building safer communities. We also provide sponsorship to local events that attract a broad audience in the communities we serve. 

Your event or program should endeavour to build community spirit and bring the community together.

Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis.

    • Have a high probability of successful completion within one year of the grant approval.

 

How do I apply?

At Hydro One, we use a process that requires the same information to be submitted by all applicants. This puts everyone on a level playing field and allows us to make an informed decision on the large volume of requests we receive.

Exclusions

  • Religious organizations for sacred or sectarian purposes.

  • Events held in support of political parties, ridings, associations and candidates.

  • Individuals/commercial events.
     

Once you apply

When you submit your completed online application, you'll receive an email confirming receipt of your request.

Due to the large volume of requests we receive, email is the best method of keeping you up-to-date with the status of your request.

We reserve the right to decline any application or provide only part of the requested funding.
