Application Form


Welcome to the ImpactHope Young Adults Grant

At ImpactHope, we believe in empowering young Canadian adults aged 18-25 to respond to their calling to serve locally and globally. Through the Young Adults Grant Campaign, we aim to provide financial assistance to qualified individuals who demonstrate purpose, need, and commitment to a specific cause.

What is the Young Adults Grant?

The Young Adults Grant Campaign is designed to raise funds to subsidize mission trips for young Canadian adults who are passionate about making a difference in the world. Our goal is to support these individuals in their journey to serve and lead by providing financial assistance for transformative mission experiences.

How Does the Campaign Work?

Grants will be awarded to young adults who demonstrate a keen interest in serving vulnerable communities and utilizing their skillset to make a difference abroad. Grants will start at $750, which will be used to offset the amount of funds needed to participate in our trip program.

  • Grant Funds: Grants will start at $750 and may increase depending on the location and applicant.
  • Application: Interested individuals must complete a detailed application form. Applications are reviewed and shortlisted based on eligibility and available budget.
  • Engagement With Donors: Regular communication with donors through participant stories and impact reports. Video and reflective testimonies are shared to provide insight into participants’ experiences.
  • Giving Back To The Community: The campaign will be funded by donors, businesses, and foundations interested in investing in Canadian youth.
  • Campaign Impact: Aim to strengthen communities by empowering young adults to serve and lead. Foster a generation of compassionate and community-minded leaders.
