Vote on this month’s Take Action Grant by December 19th!

Take Action Grants (TAG) is a grassroots granting program supported by Calgary Dollars and The Calgary Foundation. Grants are awarded in matching Calgary Dollar and federal dollar amounts to citizen-led projects that support and promote social and environmental justice. And YOU, the people in the community, can vote and help decide if the project(s) should be supported!

This month, Food Not Bombs (FNB) seeks to grow capacity for more regular “public picnics” via a community event. This is an opportunity to raise awareness of FNB’s presence and goals, alleviate hunger, and build capacity and community. They are requesting $1000 in Canadian Dollars and $1000 in Calgary Dollars. Funds will go towards kitchen equipment, food, promotions, venue rental, film documentation, performer honorariums, and bus tickets.  

You can participate in the selection process by watching this video by the applicant and then voting here (you are welcome to add comments about the project too). Voting will close at midnight on December 19th.
