2021 Community Project Fund

The Twenty Under 40 Foundation is now accepting proposals for its 2021 Community Project Fund. The Foundation and Community Project Fund selection committee is comprised of past Twenty Under 40 London award recipients. Our mission is to give back and elevate the community that supported our Alumni as they worked to achieve excellence in—and for the good of—our city.

The Twenty Under 40 Foundation Community Project Fund is open to all local, registered not-for-profit organizations. Projects submitted should demonstrate a lasting and measurable impact for your organization and the community served. This may include capital improvements, physical items or programming that supports capacity building, education or mentorship. Proposals may include new or unique ways of adapting during COVID-19, but are not limited as such.

  • Organization Overview – What service(s) do you provide to the London community?
  • Who/what do you support and what impact does your organization have on the community?
  • Project Description
  • Complete Project Cost – Contribution amount will be for one project up to a maximum value of $10,000
  • Case for Support – How will your proposal (program, equipment etc.) help you to create
    lasting impact? How will you measure impact?

Throughout the month of October, the selection committee will evaluate and shortlist proposals. Foundation Members will then make their selection using a ranked ballot system. The successful project will be announced publicly at the Top 20 Under 40 Awards ceremony in November 2021, where a representative from the organization will be invited to attend and accept the donation. Notification of the selection process results will be communicated to the contact person listed approximately two weeks prior.
