FCC seeks applications for the FCC Expression Fund

Dec 06, 2016

Regina, Saskatchewan – Farm Credit Canada (FCC) will once again donate $50,000 from the FCC Expression Fund to encourage the use of Canada’s official languages in communities across the country.

Successful projects receive between $2,000 and $10,000 to fund initiatives that could include community centres, schools, daycare centres and projects, such as theatrical productions, art galleries and concerts.

Community and volunteer groups located in English and French linguistic minority communities are encouraged to view the eligibility criteria and apply online at www.fcc.ca/expressionfund. Applications for the FCC Expression Fund will be accepted until January 8, 2017. FCC will announce the selected projects in winter 2017.

For a project to be considered for funding, the organization must be a registered charity or a registered non-profit.

“As a federal Crown corporation, FCC is committed to communicating with customers and employees in their preferred official language,” said Brenda Stasuik, director, Corporate Social Responsibility at FCC. “Our bilingual heritage is unique and FCC is pleased to support it by offering funding to worthy projects that promote both official languages.”

Last year, the FCC Expression Fund donated $50,000 to eight linguistic minority communities. For more information about the 2016 recipients, visit www.fcc.ca/expressionfund.
