4-H Ontario – Ontario Mutuals Grant Application Program

4-H Ontario is grateful and appreciative of the annual sponsorship funding we receive from Ontario Mutuals. In order to receive this grant, Ontario Mutuals requires 4-H Ontario to report how the funds are being spent. 

Through this program, each 4-H Association will have the opportunity to apply for a grant of $250 to support a local project or initiative. Our hope is that this financial support from Ontario Mutuals will enable you to provide a new project innovation and/or enhance an existing program. 

In order to apply, please have your Association complete the application form below no later than Saturday, October 31, 2020. Funds will be dispersed by electronic transfer to your local Association bank account. 

This is a two step process that requires the following commitment from you to receive your funding accordingly. You will need to include the following information to complete the application form:

  • Project/program description
  • Total # of members, volunteers and leaders this project/initiative will impact
  • Date, time & location
  • How you will acknowledge and recognize your local Farm Mutual

After you have completed the project/program initiative, submit a final report of the actual costs along with the receipts or general ledgar information. 

As in-person activities are currently suspended, here are some examples of how funds can be used until in-person activities can resume :

·       Purchasing of virtual platforms

·       Virtual resources
