Our local funding includes the following communities:
Shell Canada’s social investment strategy focuses on partnerships and programs demonstrating national reach and benefit across Canada. For 2024 - 2026, we’re launching a refreshed program focused on two areas of importance for Canada and our company.
Our refreshed strategy
The intention of the refreshed national strategy is to focus and invest meaningfully in a smaller number of national or regional non-profit organizations that are making significant positive impacts in communities across the country. By investing in this purposeful way over multiple years, it allows organizations to plan ahead, and for programs to thrive and reach successful outcomes.
The new application process: Early 2024
Shell Canada is shifting the application and allocation process. Instead of accepting ongoing funding requests from organizations, there will be a one-time partner application process in early 2024. National and regional organizations that meet the criteria in the two investment areas (Indigenous Communities Rising and Energy Shift) will submit a proposal and Shell Canada will select a small number of national partners.
Please check back in January 2024 for updates on the new application process and when it opens.
Please note: this new process is only for the national and regional partnerships. Shell Canada will continue to accept on-going funding requests that have direct local impact and meet the specific needs in the communities where we operate. You can find more information on those specific communities and how to apply here.
Please contact the Shell company in your country or visit the Shell Foundation website.
Funding may be used for one-time projects that benefit the community and are sustainable after the conclusion of the grant.
