Supporting local charities through community grants

At TELUS, we understand that each unique community has unique needs. That’s why we put community funding in the hands of local leaders who know our communities best.

Through TELUS Community Boards grants funded by the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation, local charities are making a difference by empowering vulnerable populations through technology.

Where to apply for funding

Local and regional charity

Registered charities working within a specific city or region can apply to their applicable Community Board.

If your organization supports community-based initiatives outside of one of our major Community Board centers, you can still apply for a regional grant.

National, territorial and provincial charities

Larger national, territorial and provincially focused registered charities can access funding directly through the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation.

International funding

Each year, TELUS International Community Boards fund grassroots charities in the Philippines, Central America and Eastern Europe.

Please note: If your organization has a sponsorship opportunity you would like TELUS to consider, please apply using our online sponsorship submission process.
