    Dear WICC, our organization is a registered incorporated Canadian non-profit organization that works locally and internationally to enhance women’s empowerment and address gender-based violence (GBV). However, our organization does not have charitable status. Can we still apply for this grant? Thank you for continuing to provide funding to organizations that offer programs to stop violence against women, promotte economic and social justice and equity, and women empowerment.

      Thank you for your work to support women and address gender based violence. Unfortunately, WICC is unable to provide grant funding if you don’t have a CRA code for charitable status because of the accountability required for our policies.
