Community grants

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

Innovation Grants

Registered Canadian charities seeking funding for innovative programming to solve some of Canada’s most pressing problems facing youth are invited to apply for an Innovation Grant.

What we fund

Through our TELUS Community Boards, funded by the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation, we fund programs that best meet our vision and clearly demonstrate the following criteria:

  • Focus on enabling vulnerable youth to succeed
  • Align with our interest in health and education
  • Demonstrate technological innovation in program delivery
  • Define and measure social outcomes

International Community Boards

Funded by TELUS International, our overseas community boards support local grassroots initiatives from registered charities in five countries, including Bulgaria, El Salvador, Guatemala, the Philippines and Romania.
