Community Engagement Fund
The Community Engagement Fund is a source of financial assistance for projects which foster community building between the McGill community and external communities. Importantly, the fund is primarily intended for community engagement initiatives, not for events with the sole purpose of fundraising. Examples of projects that are funded by the charity fund are those involved in community development and the provision of social services and social capital or those where McGill students participate in and are directly engaged in a project in the community. Funding is prioritized for projects that provide services which are linked to the skill-sets of the service providers.
