Sage, a company that provides cloud business management solutions, is providing $500,000 to non-profits through its Enterprise Fund.

Since its launch in January 2016, Sage Foundation’s Enterprise Fund has been supporting entrepreneurial programs improving the lives of military veterans, young people, and women and girls in Canada. This is its second round of funding; in early 2017, Sage provided $500,000 to 30 projects.

The program offers grants between $10,000 to $25,000.

One of the projects already supported by the fund includes PowerMyLearning, a digital learning tool that helps teachers, students, and parents in high-poverty school communities improve college and career readiness.

“Non-profit organizations survive and thrive thanks to the dedication of staff and volunteers, but they also need funding to take action. Through the Sage Foundation, we’re committed to supporting non-profits by providing grants to support vital local projects,” said Paul Struthers, executive vice president and managing director of Sage Canada. “There are so many charities with really exceptional, original ideas on the brink of delivering real change. By providing easier access to funds, it is our hope that these organizations will be able to turn their enterprising solutions into reality.”

This next funding opportunity is open until November 28, and will offer grants between $10,000 to $25,000 to successful applicants.

To qualify, organizations must have an income of less than $2 million, and be operational for two years or less. For more details on the Sage Foundation’s Enterprise Fund and how to apply, click here.
