Honda Canada

The Honda Canada Foundation funding can be granted to charitable groups with CRA status such as:
  • Educational institutions (primary, secondary, college, university)
We’re committed to giving back to communities where Canadians live, work and play. No matter the size of the contribution, we give back to the people who’ve welcomed us to their communities. It’s more than building goodwill, being a part of the community or being recognized for our support. It’s about building a better society together.
We aspire to give wisely with a youthful and adventurous spirit. By helping charities registered with the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA), our goals include:

  • Recognizing and responding to the changing needs of our communities.
  • Investing in the people and charitable groups that make a difference.
  • Maximizing the usefulness of our involvement.

Youth Action Grants

The Youth Action Grants (YAG) were created by McCreary’s Youth Advisory & Action Council (YAC). The purpose of the YAGs is to provide BC youth (ages 12–19) from school districts that participated in the 2018 BC Adolescent Health Survey the opportunity to deliver a project to improve youth health in their school or community.

The 2019 granting cycle is now open.

YAGs fund projects which are:

  • Youth-led
  • Focused on one or more of the key findings from the 2018 BC AHS.
  • Benefitting youth in your school or community.
  • Supported by at least one adult (such as a teacher, counsellor, youth worker, adult mentor, etc.)

Application Process

Step one: Tell us about your project by filling out an application form here.

Step two: Send us your completed application form by email or mail.

Step three: The YAG Committee (members from McCreary’s YAC and adult supports) will review your application and let you know if it has been successful within 4 weeks of receiving it.
