The Rainbow Grants program provides funding to foster new and innovative services and programs for the LGBTTIQQ2S community in the GTA, in the areas of education, health, human rights, arts & culture, and research & advocacy (non-governmental).
Rainbow Grants are intended to help people mobilize others to support and embrace the diversity of our communities. Grants are made to projects that will have a demonstrable impact on the broader community. To apply for the 2013 Rainbow Grants, click here.

- Seed new and innovative projects to combat discrimination on the basis of sexual/gender identity and create an atmosphere of respect and acceptance,
- Support needed but underfunded services to LGBT individuals and families, and
- Provide programming specifically aimed at supporting newcomers to Canada who have identified themselves with the LGBT community.
Community One Foundation thanks RBC Royal Bank for its strong commitment to supporting the LGBTTIQQ2S community in the Greater Toronto Area.
