Event Sponsorship Program

The Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough offers a limited number of sponsorships as part of the Foundation’s Event Sponsorship Program.

The Event Sponsorship Program was designed to help support registered charities and non-profit organizations in Greater Peterborough in order to contribute to making the city, towns, and villages that make up our region vital communities for all.


  • Arts & Culture
  • Non-profit sector capacity building*

*We define “sector capacity building” as something that benefits the non-profit sector generally. This could be a seminar, webinar, or other offering that is open to non-profit sector participation. The focus could be on volunteerism, tips on effective fundraising, board recruitment, awareness building and so on. It does not include a fundraising event. Unsure if your event qualifies? Get in touch and we’ll discuss it.


Event Sponsorships range from $100.00 up to (but not exceeding) $4,000.00 (CAD; including HST, if applicable).


In order to provide funding to a variety of different events, organizers hosting multiple events in a fiscal year will not receive more than the maximum amount they are eligible to apply for. It is therefore recommended that organizers planning multiple events apply once for all of their events.


All Event Sponsorship applications are evaluated against the guidelines (found at the button below) by the Foundation’s Communications Coordinator and the Executive Director.

Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis from early March, 2024 to September 30, 2024. This time period will cover events that take place from April 7, 2024 to March 31, 2025. To be clear, if your event takes place in January/February/March, 2025, please apply for funding by September 30, 2024.

Applications must be submitted at least 30 days prior to the start of an event to ensure there is time to review the application. As this is a new initiative, we will do our best to assess events that take place in March and April, 2024 as soon as an application is submitted.

Applications will not be reviewed by email.

Do not hesitate to get in touch if you need clarification or if you wish to discuss your eligibility. We’re here to help.
